Leighton Moss 2010

View from the Public HideThe day started well at the feeders, with everyone catching the Marsh Tit this time, and each hide visitied saw our daily tally rise steadily.

We saw a total of 52 species with three being new to the group (shown in italics).

The highlight had to be the very rare Great White Egret, a huge white bird, which flew into the marshes just as we arrived at the hide and only stayed a couple of minutes before flying off again.
