        Good news about the 22 Avocets, let’s hope I can get into the Eric Morecambe Hide this year.

          Re the Eric Morecambe & Allen hides: The predator fence has been installed and we are hoping to open the hides and car park on April 12, in accordance with government guidelines.
          These hides and car park will be opened and closed on a daily basis (other hides on the reserve will remain open at all times).

          Please keep an eye on the Leighton Moss website, Facebook page or Twitter account for updates.

              21st march, 340 pinkfeet visible from embankment between Heald Brow and RSPB car park. 4 avocets and pair of pintail on Allen Pool. Chiffchaffs singing slope of Heald Brow and Jack Scout. 3 rbm low tide at JBP.
              Recent weeks parts of Silverdale skjaer have started to re-emerge from the sand while parts of the outer end of JBP breakwater have disappeared. A significant channel has developed close inshore so that incoming tide hits shore part of breakwater first. February it was shore end of main section of breakwater, less than 12 months ago it was furthest rocks of breakwater.
