With a forecast of cold weather but the prospect of clear blue skies and sunshine we took no persuading at all to plan another day at Leighton Moss RSPB reserve. With all the gear prepared the night before we were up and away in good time and arrived at the reserve soon after nine o'clock, rather than starting at the main centre we went straight down the causeway to the public hide, on the way a lovely swan was on one of the ponds.
After a second or two the kingfisher adopted a friendlier and more photogenic stance..
A trip back to the car and a short drive to the main car park followed, some hot drinks to warm up and then we set out to the two hides near the centre. A grey squirrel was feasting on seeds that had been placed for the birds..
The expected robin turned up eventually...
