Leader: Giles Morris Tel: 07712 398903
A joint trip with BOC.
Meet at 10.00hrs in the RSPB Ham Wall Reserve car park at Ashcott Corner (ST 449397 BA6 9SX Satnav 51.153622,-2.788921). From the middle of Meare Village on the B3151 Wedmore to Glastonbury road, take the minor road south, signposted to Ashcott. After approximately one mile the car park is situated on the left just after the Railway Inn and the drain bridge.
Parking charges – please note that these have been introduced at Ham Wall. Both the Natural England and RSPB car parks are charging £3 a day. RSPB members are exempt at the Ham Wall car park (place membership card in the windscreen), but they have no exemption at the Shapwick site. (Remember to remove all valuables from parked cars).
We will probably visit the main hides on both Ham Wall and Shapwick sides, depending on water levels and recent sightings.
Level walking, but may be muddy in places. Those who want to extend the visit to include the dusk Starling roost should bring food for lunch and warm clothing.
