A beautiful September day, and the light was perfect for viewing the egrets and waders on the Eric Morecombe and Allen pools. When we arrived at the hide, the Great White Egret was flying in amongst a whole flock of Little Egrets. Amazing numbers of these birds in the North West at the moment. There were hundreds of waders on the Allen pool, with my favourites being the Little Stints. On the reserve we had a good flyby view of a Bittern from public hide.

Little Egrets!

Even more Black-tailed Godwits.
