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.
