Great White Egret
Our tallest and most elegant heron is now a regular sight on the Avalon marshes: stunningly beautiful, this species only colonised Britain in 2012. Available to see throughout the year.
Cattle Egret
Europe’s smallest egret is usually seen on wildlife films or on holidays around the Med. But now a flock have colonised the Avalon Marshes, and can be seen feeding alongside their larger cousins. Available to see throughout the year.
Purple Heron
The seventh and latest species of heron to breed on the Avalon Marshes, this elusive, largely nocturnal species may be glimpsed as it flies out of its roost on spring and summer evenings. Available to see in Spring and Summer.
Bittern
More than 50 of these elusive herons now breed on the Avalon marshes, and sightings are (almost) guaranteed. In the breeding season you can also hear them making that incredible booming sound. Available to see throughout the year though but best in Spring & Summer.
Crane
Europe’s tallest and most majestic bird was released onto the Somerset Levels a few years ago – now there are almost 100 individuals. Available to see throughout the year.
Hobby
Our most acrobatic falcon hawks for insects over the Avalon Marshes in early spring, and may also be seen in summer as it hunts for young swallows and martins. Available to see in Spring and Summer.
Starling Murmuration
The most famous wildlife spectacle in Britain, with as many as one million birds, takes place from mid-November to mid-February on the Avalon Marshes. Simply breathtaking. Available to see in Winter.
Warblers
Up to a dozen species of warblers breed in Somerset: the Quantocks are home to Wood Warbler, the marshes house various reedbed species, and there is always the chance of a very rare and special bird – one of just a handful breeding in the UK. Available to see in Spring and Summer.
Large Blue and other butterflies
Somerset is a hotspot for butterflies; spring and summer tours often provide a good range of species (along with other insects such as dragonflies and damselflies). Late June and early July are also the time to see Britain’s rarest butterfly, the stunningly beautiful Large Blue – weather permitting, of course! Available to see in Summer (June & July).
