My brother visiting from Japan and we made a trip down to the increasingly mediterranean seeming somerset levels. 3 species of egrets, hobbies, harriers.  On the ground a slow worm and a glow worm (larva).

on the canal sides whitethroats singing with background of reed warblers, buntings and the hedges alive with garden warbler song. Cuckoo males heard but not seen.
