10th October 2021 – Catcott Moor, Somerset Levels

We had a very enjoyable hour or so in glorious sunshine at Catcott Moor on the Somerset Levels this afternoon. There is a very pleasant hide here looking across the moor towards Glastonbury Tor but we benefited fully from this lovely October day by watching from behind a screen at the side of the hide. From here we had good views of three marsh harriers and a stonechat. There was also a roe buck in an adjoining field and driving to the hide we also saw 17 little egret in one field.
