Nevertheless not wanting to waste a sunny day, I was up bright and early and soon heading South into lancashire, and Leighton Moss. First off a walk along the causeway where I had my first encounter----
|A Robin practically begging for food.|
|I had to keep backing away from it as it was too close for my lens.|
|Also this Magpie foraging, they don't usually let you get this close.|
|Two distant Swans keeping the water moving.|
There was nothing from the other hides, even the marsh pools where dead.
So I move on to the Silverdale shore, where I found a couple of pair of Mergansers, some distant Wigeon, ditto Shell Duck , and Goldeneye.
|Male Red-breasted Merganser.|
|A pair of Mergansers.|
|Looking across a misty Morecambe Bay at Heysham nuclear power station.|
|Blencathra, the sun now starting to disappear behind the cloud that was beginning to roll in.|
