The Leggy Beauties of the Levels - Somerset's Wetland Superstars
By: Damon Bridge
In this talk Damon Bridge will talk about the work of the RSPB on the Somerset Levels and Moors and its role in helping to conserve and enhance its wetland biodiversity. Expect a wealth of waders, a bevvy of bitterns, a siege of cranes and a smattering of newly colonising wonders from the continent. This will be a Zoom talk and invitations will be sent to members by email a little closer to the time.
