Somerset Sightings Map

Autumn 2018 update

The long summer with the cranes largely hidden in the hay meadows of the moors is coming to an end, and the birds are once again starting to gather. You can try looking and listening out for them from the River Parrett Trail that runs West of Langport towards Burrowbridge as they are sometimes out on Aller Moor. You can also get here by boat - a lovely way to travel - Contact Ian, skipper of the 'Duchess of Cocklemoor' who runs boat trips from Langport up to Oath Lock to book your place! If you're having no luck in Somerset, an alternative is to visit WWT Slimbridge in Gloucestershire where you can often get good views of cranes - and look out for this year's chicks too!
