Somerset Sightings Map

Jan 2017 update

From shortly before Christmas the wintering flock of cranes on the Somerset Levels were being seen regularly in the Wetmoor area, near Muchelney to the South of Langport, and also on Aller Moor to the West of Langport - their more usual haunt. Try looking and listening out for them from the River Parrett Trail that runs West of Langport towards Burrowbridge, or east towards Langport between the metal bridge at Stathe and the footbridge at Oath. The early mornings are the best bet. Their nighttime roost has been moving around - but is often on RSPB West Sedgemoor Nature Reserve - however, seeing them at roost is virtually impossible as they come in at dark and leave very early in the morning! You could also visit WWT Slimbridge in Gloucestershire where you can often get really good views of a group of a dozen or so cranes that have established themselves there.
