Had a fantastic trip to Leighton Moss at the weekend, with a mission of seeing some Bearded Tits.
I certainly wasn't disappointed, as I approached the path to the grit trays, they were already there and more than I could count. Very Happy Banana! such lovely birds!

We visited all the hides, and managed to see a family of Otters frolicking in the water, I'm not usually a big fan of these, but seeing them in the flesh made all the difference, amazing to watch.

After this, and interspersed with delicious coffee and cake Thumbs up my next mission was to try and spot a Kingfisher!

I mentioned this when I went to a hide one had been seen at, and just a couple of minutes later, a beautiful Kingfisher swooped along and landed on a nearby post. We watched it fishing and it put on a good show for a good 10 - 15 minutes.
All in all, we had an excellent day, spent in my favourite reserve. Banana! Wine
