Walk along the causeway. 2 bitterns still booming.
Might have to make this my daily walk route. Leighton is wonderful now it's so quiet!

Are you sure about the Red-necked Phalarope? A rare bird in Lancashire at the best of times but would be particularly unlikely in March (since 2000 the earliest UK record is the 22nd April)

Hi Matt - we ask that people do not post bird sightings from Leighton Moss at this time.

We do not wish to encourage birders to travel to any sites in order to see specific birds as this contravenes all government advice around essential travel. To encourage people to gather at any location would be highly irresponsible and could literally threaten lives.

Should birdwatchers find rare or scarce birds anywhere in the coming weeks we would advise keeping a note of the sightings (along with detailed notes and if possible a photograph) to submit at a later date, so that they can be included in annual reports etc.

Sorry, only registered users may post in this forum.
