Leighton Moss - 9th October 2010

A quick trip home from Uni saw me harbouring the twitching bug in my system, so I cheekily comandeered my parents planned Lie-in and went up to Leighton Moss for a couple of yearticks.
We arrived at c9.30 and Bearded Tits (205) were present on the grit trays straight away.
A trip to the coastal hides proved a little more difficult to connect with a year tick, but after a decent scan, I happened to catch a scurrying Little Stint(206) next to a Common Redshank. There were infact 2 juveniles. The long staying Great White Egret sadly appears to have relocated to the Ribble Estuary, so I didn't catch up with that. There is still time this year though!
