Our choice for our final day was a trip to Leighton Moss. As yet the reserve is only partially opened. We were able to visit my favourite hides: Eric Morcambe and Tim Allen, over looking the bay, bu sadly the cafe isn't open yet. I have never had a bad day in these hides, however, and was delighted to find that there were 6 great white egrets there which was a first for me. While feeding they came well within camera range. I was also pleased to get a distant shot of a greenshank, one of several present.
After a while here we returned to the site via Arnside for another ice cream and on our return it was pleasant to have some more feeding station photography with a beer at my side.
