The Somerset Levels 5th-7th February

Birding in Sussex has been fairly non-existent recently, although there have only been a few nice days when birding would've been possible. In these nice days, I was co-leading another Naturetrek trip down on the Somerset Levels. Once again, the clients were great company and yet another successful trip was achieved. An excellent gathering of 70 Cattle Egrets spread across three fields around the Ham Wall complex was well worth seeing, as well as the usual late afternoon gathering of thousands of Starlings - the latter once again proving popular among the clients.

Since returning, I have finished my flying/slaving career in the skies, and am now ready to embark on an epic trip to Nepal. This will involve a hike up to Everest Basecamp from Lukla; and then undertaking a 10-day tour of various sites within Nepal. So, I'll be back in business from mid-March, unless I can update regularly out there.
