About my Village QTH
Shapwick is a small village on the Somerset Levels close to the National Nature Reserve
This magnificent wetland reserve is managed by Natural England and covers over 500 ha at the heart of the Somerset Levels and Moors. It’s an area that’s steeped in history, and an atmospheric landscape of great skies and endless horizons.
Habitats include lush green wildflower meadows; still, dark ditches; damp, secretive fens, shady, wet fern woods; and open water, fringed with rustling reedbeds.
Marvel at the huge flocks of starlings coming into roost in winter and the spring migration of hobbies arriving from tropical Africa. Shapwick Heath is also the location of the Neolithic Sweet Track, the oldest man-made routeway in Britain.
It’s the mix of habitats at Shapwick that make the reserve so rich in wildlife
Over 24 different mammals have also been seen at Shapwick, including water voles, lesser horseshoe bats and, of course, otters.
