Somerset Levels In Spring With Mike Dilger

From: £Contact us

Explore this Ramsar Site with TV naturalist Mike Dilger. Look for bearded tit and Cetti’s warbler, watch hobbies hunting dragonflies, look for orchids, visit a heronry, listen for booming bitterns and much more.

A Ramsar Site lying under Glastonbury Tor, the Somerset Levels comprise a network of exciting reserves. Bitterns breed in the reedbeds, and have recently been joined by Britain's only breeding little bitterns. This is the best place in the UK for seeing herons, while common cranes have been successfully re-introduced. The ancient wet grasslands are home to a rich flora, including several orchids, as well as newts, reptiles and an abundance of dragonflies which in spring provide prey for migrating hobbies.
