THE Somerset Levels - so good that even Springwatch goes there. And YES we did see the first nesting site of the first great white egret in the UK - thanks to the Natural England and the RSPB - and YES I have joined now!
Actually we saw the GWE and where the nest was (apparently), but nothing of the nest itself. We had a nice chat to the armed guards too.
However we did get a good "Bag" generally: hobbies, cuckoos, lots of warblers, bittern (sighting and booming), little egrets, other water birds, lots of dragonflies and damselflies, some stunning orchids (southern marsh) and a small adder.
Anyway here they are:
|Male Four-spotted chaser|
|Male Emperor dragonfly|
|An oak apple - we thought that it was especially large|
