Only Quiet at Leighton Moss

Marsh Harrier

Went on the local RSPB trip to Leighton Moss on Sunday, arrived at 1030 which put paid to seeing the Bearded Tits which usually move away from the grit trays before then. Walked from the RSPB centre to the Eric Morcombe hide but it was fairly quiet here with Spotted Redshank showing in the distance, Merlin passing through, although plenty of Pintail and other commoner species here. Back at the Centre, the hides were overcrowded and difficult to see much. Left the area at 3.30 and that was about it for the day. Nice coach though!!
