Friday March 18

Sarcoscypha coccinea (Scarlet elf-cup)
Friday March the 18, and as Mrs W had the day off,  we headed South, First stop Sizergh Castle, unfortunately no Hawfinch while we were there about 10ish, but there had been good numbers earlier.

Next stop Leighton Moss, the sun was shinning and it was very enjoyable  wandering about. Although good numbers of Avocet had been recorded in the last few days, there was none viewable from the marsh hides.

Male Wigeon

Back at the main centre there was all the usual on view, pairs
 of Goldeneye, Little Grebe, Great Crested Grebe, were the pick of the bunch on the water. Mrs W found 5 Buzzard in the air at one time, and Peregrine over Lillian's hide. Also Long-tailed Tit and Goldcrest at the back of Lillian's.

Just the two of us, Male & Female Wigeon

After lunch we had a look in at the Jackson hide & then Grizdale. 1 Little Egret could be seen at a distance, but apart from the usual wildfowl there was nothing unusual.

Male Pheasant
A very good day.
