Down to the Somerset Levels. Not the best of starts, as we had not even got to the levels, when we were involved in an accident. As a result a cyclist went right through my rear windscreen. So not a great day, as had to wait around until a new windscreen was fitted. Drove the short distance to Westhay, to wait around. A Bittern was heard booming, and a Cuckoo was singing and then did actually fly over the car park. As we were getting bored waiting i drove to Ham Walls RSPB for an hour before going back to Westhay for the fitting. At Ham Walls, we had another Cuckoo and a Bittern in flight. A female Marsh Harrier was seen distantly from the 1st viewing platform. Only other things of note were a few Dragon/Damselflies, including this Four-spotted Chaser.
