A few images from a recent visit to Leighton Moss. Apparently the Bitterns are having a rough year here with perhaps only one pair on the reserve; the severe winter having taken its toll.
The Marsh Harrier showed well throughout the day and a Spoonbill flew over the reserve in the early afternoon. Black-tailed Godwits numbered around 50 and Lapwings wheeled around the reed beds. The Red Deer made a brief appearance early on in the day.
