RSPB Leighton Moss
Driving through the lakes
Yet another stunning new in the north lakes
Reason to celebrate
We spent our 21st wedding anniverary up the Lake District where we got engaged. It was a short luxury break but perfect and enabled us to make the most of some favourable weather.
We did get some birding in just south of the lakes at RSPB Leighton Moss. What I didn't realise is the Wader scrapes are actaully three miles down the road. So after a quick look at the main reserve we headed down to the wader scrapes where the two hides gave stunning views of the reserve on the edge of Morecombe Bay.
There was plenty to see including my first Curlew Sandpiper for a couple of years, a Green Sandpiper, 50+ Redshank, a Avocet, 6 Little Egret, juvenile Shelducks, 10 Greenshank, Lapwing, Black-tailed Godwits & numerous Redshanks.
