May’s Highlights

Today we visited Somerset one of my favourites places.

We had an amazing day today spotting around 70 species of bird and a few Butterflies.

Highlights from today included several Marsh Harriers patrolling the reed beds on the lookout for an easy meal, several Great white Egrets and a few Little Egrets out on the edge of the water fishing.

Several Duck species around today with the best find of 4 Gargany out on the water, also a few Bittern  flying in and out of the reeds.

A few waders around with Snipe, Black tailed Godwits, Redshank, Ruff, Spotted Redshank, Lapwings and a nice Glossy ibis found.

Several Warblers species around and a couple of Cuckoo calling in the distance, also a couple of Water rail were head squealing in the reed bed.

The final highlight of the day was a nice fly over by 3 Common Crane calling as they flew past.

Butterflies seen today included Comma, Brimstone, Orange tip, Speckled Wood and Peacock.

Another wonderful day in Somerset.
