Bats and Snakes
Started out at Greylake at 08:30 on a sunny Sunday morning. Saw at least 4 grass snakes and heard a couple more slither off. Very good numbers of small tortoiseshell butterflies here also great views of a marsh harrier. Onwards then to Ham Wall. Still no sighting of the little bittern but so many other wild things to see and observe. Found a group of bats below a bat box some flying in the daylight. Also pleased to see 2 common terns as well as a great view of a bittern. On the Shapwick side the David Walker path to Decoy hide is an amazing wild walk - plants, flowers, butterflies and woodland.
