Leighton Moss

Not quite as sunny as yesterday and consequently a little cooler, not quite what was forecast.
    Hoping to top up my year list I decided to head for Leighton. I called in first at the public hide along the causeway. There was nothing out of the ordinary and no sign of the Bearded Tits putting an appearance in, the pair of Great Black-backed Gulls have set up residence again in front of the public  hide.

 Next I had a quick look in at Lillian's hide, but as can be seen from pic. at certain times of the day when the sun is shinning it makes viewing difficult.

For a change I called in at the Allan hide and got good views of Avocet and Little Egret, although at a distance.

Another good day but only added Chiffchaff to the year list although it is my first migrant of the year. I've had problem loading this post so isn't as good as I was hoping.
