Arctic Temperatures on the Somerset Levels

As I was booked to give four lectures in Somerset and Devon almost directly after getting back from Norway, we drove to Taunton on the Sunday and spent some time on Monday exploring the Somerset Levels. When booking the trip 2 years ago, I envisaged warm West country days with lots of signs of spring bird activity! We only managed an hour or so walk round Shapwick Heath but here are  a Grumpy Heron, Widgeon kleptoparasitizing diving coots (i.e. waiting to pinch what they bring up from the bottom), a Marsh Harrier, Great Crested Grebe and Long-Tailed Tit.
