First stop was at the Eric Morcambe hide.
I had read about good numbers of Avocet being present but didn't expect the 70+ that I saw.
Not sure what the correct word is for an accumulation of Avocets but these few were having a real chinwag to each other.
There were reports of a Spoonbill about which I was unable to see but three Egrets were welcome.
Over on the main reserve I had five sightings of Marsh Harrier
And a flock of Black-tailed Godwit were nice to watch
Then it was on to Whitbarrow to continue the search
