Early summer on the Levels

Somerset Levels tour.

A little overcast for our tour today but still packed full of wonderful wildlife.

A single Cuckoo flying at the back of the reedbed the adults will soon be heading back to Africa leaving their young to find their own way there.

Lots of Herons out today with Little, Great white Egret, Grey heron and several Bitterns flying around, see images below.

A few Hobby seen catching dragonflies along with Sparrowhawk, Kestrel, Buzzard and several Marsh Harries both male and females all seen well.

Not many small birds around today maybe just a bit to windy for them but we did find a nice male Blackcap sitting out in the open, also Whitethroat and several Cetti's Warblers blasting out their calls.

See below images all taken buy our client today paul (Great white Egret, Great Crested Grebe, Grey Heron, a very interesting day at my favourite Somerset reserve.DT.
