DORSET - SOMERSET NEW YEAR MINI-BREAK

The combined trip of the Somerset Levels and Southern Dorset worked very well, we logged 140 species noting all five species of Grebes and all three Divers. Great, Little and Cattle Egrets are now easy sightings in Somserset with Spoonbill, Glossy Ibis and Whooper Swans regulars in both areas. It had been an excellent tour and despite the inclement weather we saw some excellent species, top of the list went the group’s favourites, voted birds’ the of day throughout the tour; Firecrest, Hen Harrier, Dartford Warbler, Dipper, Purple Sandpiper, the Starling murmuration and the Black Redstart. Other goodies included the Lesser Scaup, Red-necked Grebe and the ‘white’ Ruff. The seawatching experience at Portland Bill was also mentioned and the stormy weather conditions at the Cobb at Lyme Regis were unforgettable
