Leighton Moss RSPB 30th Dec' 2011

An awful day weather-wise, was brightened with Glossy Ibis, Bittern, Marsh Harrier
and star of the show for me, my first sighting of Otter on the reserve.
A Greenshank and Spotted Redshank were on the Eric Morecambe Pools.

Glaucous Gull, Heysham, 27th Dec' 2011

Present for over a week now, i decided to pay a visit. The bird was mostly
roosting on the wooden jetty but did fly briefly, allowing better views.
A single 1st winter Little Gull was over the outfalls as were several Kittiwakes
and a single Med' Gull. Three Shags showed very well inside the Harbour.
