11th December 2022 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Meet at 10.00hrs in the RSPB Ham Wall Reserve car park at Ashcott Corner (ST 449397; BA6 9SX). From the middle of Meare Village on the B3151 Wedmore to Glastonbury road, take the minor road south, now with a brown signposted to Nature Reserve. After approximately one mile the car park is situated on the left just after the Railway Inn and the drain bridge. NB – not the Shapwick car park, which is on the other side of the road. Level walking, but may be muddy in places. Parking charges: RSPB members are exempt at the Ham Wall car park (place membership card in the windscreen).
The Avalon Reserves should be full of wintering ducks, herons/egrets and waders, this makes raptors likely and then there are the wintering passerines – siskins, redpolls and thrushes. There’s always a chance of bitterns and bearded tits, so lots to hope for. Please contact the leader if you are going to join the trip: [email protected] or 07712 398903
