Ornithology: Avalon Marshes (Ham Wall/Shapwick)

THE SOMERSET LEVELS

Sunday, 14th May, 10:00

Leaders: Mike Johnson (0117 953 2545), Giles Morris (01275 373917 or 07712398903)

Meet at 10am at the new RSPB car park (ST 448395). From the middle of the village of Meare on the B3151 Wedmore to Glastonbury Road, take the minor road signposted Ashcott. The car park is about a mile down the road on the left just after the Railway Inn and the bridge over the South Drain.

We will walk through parts of the RSPB Ham Wall Reserve and the Natural England Meare Heath Reserve looking for a full range of wetland species, from ducks to dragonflies, harriers to hedge sparrows and waders to wombats – although the latter might be a little optimistic. All members and visitors alike are welcome to join us.

It is essential to inform one of the leaders by the evening of Saturday, 13th May if you are planning to attend.
