Anyway it was getting on for 10-30 by the time we got out of the house and finally heading off to Leighton Moss. The weather was a bit iffy with heavy showers during the day, though for most part when walking around we managed to stay dry.
|Spotted Redshank nearest to lens Common Redshank behind, Its good to compare the two.|
The first set of pics are taken from the Eric Morecambe hide, and while there the weather stayed fine.
|Black-tailed Godwit, will have to see if anyone knows anything about the rings.|
|They have a beautiful plumage.|
|Time out for a spot of preening.|
Back at the centre we had a spot of lunch before checking out some of the other hides, although bird wise there wasn't a lot going on. A Marsh Harrier put in a short appearance, and a couple of Little Egrets showed for a while.
Coming home on the M6 the weather turned very nasty, very heavy rain, and driving conditions were atrocious, fortunately we arrived home safe and sound.
