May 21st: Potteric Carr YWT
It's always quite a long walk to anywhere at Potteric and Piper Marsh was no exception but it was worth it. The hide was quiet and the chicken of the woods just outside kept quiet too.
Chicken of the Wood
Inside the hide I immediately saw a pair of black-winged stilts. A lapwing and a particularly clumsy Canada goose were making life difficult at times.
Can't help feeling those long legs can be a nuisance at times!
May 22nd: Holme Fleet near Saltholme
Now we're in far away land. From the little off-road parking area at Holme Fleet a young little gull was showing. A long way off!
May 24th: Old Moor
A lesser yellowlegs at Wath Ings was also about as far away as it could be. Still, I tried! Walking back a footless black-headed gull and a rather ragged robin showed well!
