RSPB Swell Woods April 2019

The opportunity arose to spend a weekend singing Bach on the Somerset Levels, and as luck would have it this small RSPB reserve was 10 minutes away.

The heronry was busy with nesting and courting grey heron and occasional little egret. Weird primitive sounding squawks and croaks filled the air. Restless herons flew in and out of the treetop nests.

Smaller birds busied themselves in the clearing near to the hide including treecreeper, nuthatch, great spotted woodpecker, great tit, blue tit, coal tit, marsh tit, wren, robin, and my first goldcrest.
