Það sem verður gert

Join Graeme for a half-day on the Somerset Levels to see the spectacle that is the Starling Murmuration. We will depart Walls Farm at 2 pm and visit the various reserves returning at approximately 6 pm.
To see half a million of anything is breathtaking – however, to see up to half a million starlings fly in their liquid murmuration is truly a sight to behold. If the conditions are right, the skies can darken as first one group arrives to roost in the reed beds of the Avalon Marshes then another larger one arrives, then another and another. What we then want is a belligerent passing peregrine or a hungry marsh harrier then bingo! The sky is full of the largest flock/swarm/plague of birds you have ever seen – turning one way then the next. Somerset’s murmurations of starlings on a winters evening is the stuff of legend. Of course, the murmurations are spectacular, however, winter on the Levels has much more to offer than just starlings. Huge numbers of wildfowl come into the flooded fields and wetlands - ducks waders, plover, snipe and our elegant egrets make for excellent birdwatching opportunities - we have seen hen harrier, short-eared owl, spotted redshank, and our wonderful cranes, all in addition to huge flocks of lapwing and golden plover - there is so much to see and enjoy in Somerset in Winter.
