We travelled down on the Monday of half term and decided to have a lunch stop at Dyrham Park NT on the way, from a birding point of view there was little of note, but the Deer offered some nice views:
We had three full days, so decided to start with Westhay Moor a site that we had never been to before. Its a nice reserve with a couple of nice hides, although some of the hides are standing only and when you are little like Tina, you can't see anything through the openings! (Much to her annoyance!) Particularly when the Hobbys were displaying so well!
We decided to go to Ham Wall for the late afternoon, hopefully in this case for Barn Owl near the bridge. However we should have done our homework, the bridge was closed for repair work, so we walked the long way round to the first viewing platform and the screens. The weather by now had turned a bit dull and windy, so it wasn't much fun, but we stuck it out for a while.
Great Crested Grebe,
So off to Tesco in Glastonbury to find something for tea!
