Record numbers of rare birds on Avalon Marshes
Record numbers of rare birds have been breeding on the Avalon Marshes this summer.
Among them are two pairs of egrets, marsh harriers and great and little bitterns.
Over the summer two young great white egrets have been reared at Natural England’s Shapwick National Nature Reserve and three at the RSPB’s Ham Wall nature reserve.
Two young little bitterns have also been reared at Ham Wall to the delight of RSPB warden Ray Summers who said all the nesting rare birds were the “seal of approval” for the work done at the reserve.
