With the forecast good and a few days off work,I decided on a trip to Leighton moss to see if I could get some decent wader shots.There`s always plenty of Redshank present at this time of year with the added bonus of a Greenshank or a Spotted Redshank on the cards.
I wasn`t to be dissapointed as both these waders were present !They were within reasonable distance to the hide I was in and I managed a couple of shots with the camera.Also present were considerable nos of Little Egret, 58 total,plus 1 Great Egret which was away in the distance, but still caused considerable excitement amongst the many birders there!
The Egrets were also very obliging for the camera and I enjoyed my time watching them chase around the shallows in pursuit of small fish.In fact they worked as a team, coralling the shoals into the margins where they picked them off at leisure.
Later,after some lunch, I headed for the other hides on the reserve in the hope of catching some more interesting subjects to photograph.I`ll tell you how I got on in my next blog!!!!!!!!!!
