On our way to Steart Marshes in Somerset to do a spot of birdwatching we discovered a gem of a garden at Cannington near Bridgwater. In fact, we spent most of the day at The Walled Gardens of Cannington and left only a small amount of time for Steart Marshes (which was just as well as the wetlands were very dry and not as exciting as usual).
One section of the garden was called “The Mediterranean Garden” and it was such a beautiful day that you could easily have thought that you had been transported to the Mediterranean.

There weren’t many waders at Steart as everything was so dry but we saw plenty of raptors looking for a meal.
