Spring has sprung, or so it appears....

A bit murky this am and one or two things might have been missed

Eider - 234
Great-crested Grebe - 5
Red-breasted Merganser - 6
Red-throated Diver - one very distant

Couple of Middleton pics from Janet, the Brimstone and blossom a bit surreal for this time of year and the Pheasant showing the Leighton Moss photographers that we can match anything they can do :-).

Two Brimstone by hut.
One Comma by car park approx. 13.00
