What a filthy drab day out today but we did have a full compliment and this time due to weather and time restrictions we where mechanised. With Grey Lake under water and not being in the mood to walk all over Shapwick or Ham Wall we plumped for a 'cruising for birds' tactic. Which involves
Great White Egret coming in to land
Further cruising found us at Tealham Moor where the Whooper Swans where but are no more. Amazing sight of the flooded fields either side of you as you drive along a single track. Strangely this weather always seems to bring out the Buzzards. We must have seen over a dozen.

Is it a Dragonfly or is it a Kestrel??
The final stop was over to the wonderful Sheppy Inn at Godney where we usually do our debrief. A quick pint outside to see if the Otter was about but no. As we walked out though, we did catch sight of a Crow and Herring Gull..........................
We also decided to take the high road home after encountering this............
