Ducks at Greylake RSPB, Somerset.Ducks at Greylake RSPB, Somerset. 23-12-2015 At last sunshine!!, this break in the weather allowed an opportunity to visit Greylake and enjoy the sight and sounds of the thousands of birds that can now to be seen from the hides, in the far distance a flock of what must have been a thousand Golden Plover, sadly they never came close to the hide ,similar numbers of Lapwing floating like confetti in the sunlight made for an astonishing sight, a flock of forty one Black-tailed-Godwits made for an equally impressive fly past,full supporting cast of Ducks, Pintail numbers down on last year, numerous Snipe close in front of the hide. Marsh Harriers were less active than usual, Peregrine seen on a distant tree.Greylake at the moment surely must rank as one of Europe’s greatest wildlife displays.
