The highest number of an individual species seen on my visit to the RSPB Nature Reserve
at Leighton Moss was the Black-tailed Godwit. I saw them first from the Allen hide in two
large groups, very difficult to estimate how many , I would say 750+ looking fantastic as they
come into their breeding plumage.When I moved to the Eric Morecambe hide I was even closer
to them, then something spooked them & they lifted, circled on mass then came back down as
one large flock.What a treat to see this awesome sight making my trip well worth it, here are some
of the pictures I took. NP.
