Cormorants at Ham Wall

Ham Wall is a wetland nature reserve on the Somerset Levels near Glastonbury. On Monday it basked in summery weather. There was no sound of traffic – except bicycles – just a chorus of frogs and finches, warblers and water-birds, with cuckoo and bittern as distinguished soloists and the slow regular clank of a wind-powered water-pump. In places, the air was thick with dragonflies and damselflies. The yellow flags were in bloom. All this and lunch at the Sharpham Tea Garden made for a good day out.
