RSPB Nature Reserve Ham Wall


RSPB Ham Wall is a newly created wetland in Somerset nr Glastonbury. In spring, the air is filled with birdsong as they compete to establish territories and attract a mate. In summer, look out for young birds making their first venture into the outside world. Autumn brings large movements of migrating birds - some heading south to a warmer climate, others seeking refuge in the UK from the cold Arctic winter. In winter, look out for large flocks of birds gathering to feed, or flying at dusk to form large roosts to keep warm.

    This is doubtless a very special site. Birds are everywhere, including some rare breeding species so it makes for a very fulfilling day's birding. The main hide is particularly impressive and... Read full review
