A cattle egret looked as if it were regretting its move northwards from the Mediterranean as it fed beside cattle in a rain-soaked muddy field, with twelve little egrets, at the reference point above. After five pairs raised young in Somerset last year, hopefully this smart species will now become fully established as a breeding bird.
14:45: Tadham Moor, Levels, Somerset (51.185783, -2.808633)
The Somerset Levels are home to a small number of wintering whooper swans, and a pair were located from a roadside bend just beyond Westhay Village, off the Blakeway, at the reference point above. Always striking birds.
