By 10am I was on my way to Kendal to purchase a new lens for the Nikon, (not a Nikon lens I quickly add) the coffers wouldn't stretch that far, then having done so I continued on to Leighton Moss.
Calling in at Lillian's first I was greeted by the screaming hoard of Black-headed Gulls and little else.
|Part of the screaming hoard.|
The weather wasn't good, showery and a strong wind blowing, I quickly moved on to the Eric Morecambe Where the was a large number of these showing
|Black-tailed Godwits, 500-600 at least|
|These 2 Little Egrets where at a good distance but looked good as they waded and fed.|
|There has been a lot more about but not today|
|Strangely marked Black-headed Gull. seems to have black under chin|
|Quite a few Avocet about, I think they would have been happier with a bit less water.|
|One lone Oystercatcher.|
|And a few Shelduck about|
|And finally this Blackbird singing its heart out in spite of the miserable weather|
