Westhay Nature Reserve

England, Somerset


Travel light because there is lots of walking! Forget the extra lenses! I spent all day at the reserve then finished off with a pot of tea at the Peat Moore centre 200yrds back up the road. As dusk drew in we watched the Starlings roost. Quite amazing.

Update: currently no refreshments but plenty of local pubs - Dec 2008
