Somerset Levels In Winter With Mike Dilger

From: £Contact us

Explore this superb wetland with TV naturalist Mike Dilger. In winter, the Levels host some of the UK’s most spectacular starling murmurations as well as huge numbers of waterfowl.

In winter, visitors to the Somerset Levels cannot help but be amazed by the sheer numbers of birds here. Waterfowl, including wigeon, pintail and teal, crowd ponds and lakes, large flocks of lapwing and golden plover feed on wet grassland, and each evening mesmerising flocks of starlings, sometimes hundreds of thousands strong, loop and swirl over reedbeds before dropping to roost. Among the most celebrated sites for these murmurations are RSPB Ham Wall and Shapwick Heath NNR in the Avalon Marshes.
