We planned a day to Westhay Moor run by Somerset Wildlife Trust and as their literature promoted the foot and facilities of Avalon Marshes Centre we decided to lunch there. Big mistake. The Avalon Marshes Centre is dreadful, no not go there. Everything is in really poor condition and behind a scruffy frontakge it is just a waste tip. No... More

We go every year to see the starlings roost - it's like mother nature's fire works - completely amazing. It's a must. Education at its best.

This nature reserve contains land returned to the water. It is a secret place with walks on platforms through the reedbeds to bird hides which give views over open spaces of water. The only sounds are birdsong and the wind in the reeds- water birds with haunting calls. We watched fishes swimming in the shallow water. We saw a cormorant... More

Fascinating place with so much rich history. Lots of fascinating workshops, talks and walks relating to the amazing flora, fauna and creatures of the levels. Many local artists and crafters display and sell top end pieces. If you love nature and history you must pay a visit.

A lovely day going for a walk along the "paths". Keeping your eyes open for the variety of wading birds is great fun. Huge car park and free entry are a great bonus. If you ever need to unwind and relax, this is a great place to do it.

Grab some sandwiches and a flask of fresh coffee or tea and head down to Westhay Nature Reserve and sit in one of the many bird hides which are open to the public and look out over the reed beds and waters. There are many lakes constructed from old flooded peat diggings and apart from the rich bird wildlife the... More
