From a birding perspective, the Somerset Levels concentrate mostly on the Avalon Marshes, which contains the following nature reserves : Catcott Complex, Shapwick Moor, Shapwick Heath and Ham Wall. A bit further to the north-east of the Avalon Marshes is Westhay Moor.
Since I suspect that I’ll be paying these sites a visit on more than one occasion, I thought I’d start recording what I’ve seen where and when. A first, otherwise undocumented, visit was on 10 March 2013, with a sighting of a pochardB in Shapwick Heath.
For fuller details of subsequent visits, see below :
