A diversion

Last weeks Butterfly Quest included a short diversion into Leighton Moss.
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.

The 70+ is about to become a lot more + with the new arrivals.

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
