Leighton Moss Round Up

From Tuesday April 23rd
 I moved from the hides by Morecambe Bay inland to the main visitors center past the new
building work to Lilian's hide, not a lot to report here other than very loud BH Gulls.I quickly
moved on going through some woodland seeing Blue Tits,Coal Tits,Chaffinch,Wren,Willow
Warbler & Chiffchaff. In to the reedbed with some warm sunshine now and all the above birds
singing making for a very pleasant walk to first Griesdale & then Tim Jackson hides.From these
I could see a pair of GBB Gulls,Teal,Wigeon,Shoveler,Black-tailed Godwit,Tufted Duck,Lapwing,
Little Egret,Mute Swan.It was also good to see two pairs of Greylags with their Goslings.
 I then went back to the visitor center for some lunch then onto Public hide rounding the trip off
seeing Great Crested Grebe,Pochard & a male Marsh Harrier.
