The reserve is alive, with the sound of warblers
The sun has been shining (well in between the odd shower, but it's certainly a start). Apologies for the lack of recent sightings updates in the past week, we've been having some technical difficulties, that are hopefully resolved now. Down at the Eric Morecmabe and Allen hides, a little gull...

Let's face it, it's been pretty grim for the last few days, but our wonderful wildlife has not failed to disappoint us. The few people that have braved the weather over the past couple of days have been treated to some great otter sightings. One was seen yesterday from Public hide, and then again...

My New Year's resolution is to make sure that I get out on to the reserve every day - I've been missing out on so much in the last couple of weeks. But in the meantime I still get vicarious pleasure from reading the sightings book which visitors and staff have been adding to daily. One particular...

Playing the waiting game!
They say persistence pays off don't they? Well I can vouch for that, over the last couple of days I have persisted in my pursuit of that much coveted Cetti's warbler photo and I got one!! Granted it's not the best photo in the world but I'm quite pleased after they have taunted me for...

Early bird catches the worm! (And a host of other delights too)
Hello again! Well what better way to start a Sunday morning than a 5am alarm and a stroll down to the salt marsh pools. After initially cloudy weather with some light drizzle it brightened up quite nicely. Down on the salt marsh pools the long staying and sometimes elusive spoonbill was showing...

July is a quiet month apparently
Hello! Well the weekend has flown by so I thought I would update the sightings from the last three days. Our red deer are still out in force and there have been up to four calves around now, which is great to see. Stags have put in an appearance too, one in particular with a very impressive head of...

Field Notes for Summer at Leighton Moss
By mid July most chicks have fledged. This year has been the first time that a pair of Cetti’s warblers have bred on the reserve. Inexperienced fledglings are vulnerable to predators, hunger and the weather but for the first week or two broods stay close together and parent birds continue to feed...

Roll on July!!
It is hard to believe that June is nearly over, and with July fast approaching our red deer on the reserve should be producing more and more offspring. The one calf that has been seen is performing well, leaping and bounding around full of the joys of err summer I suppose you could call it. The...

Notters finally become an otter!
There have been lots of fantastic sightings today and one very exciting one for me! At the Lilian's hide we had a Mediterranean gull and potentially three marsh harriers - an adult female, a juvenile and possibly a male. Lots of interesting ducks at the Tim Jackson hide: teal, gadwall, shovellers...

The marsh harriers have been displaying well today - we got some lovely flights on our Wednesday Walkabout this morning from the Public hide. The red deer continue to enjoy the reeds and flag iris seed pods, and there is now a new display in the Tim Jackson hide with lots of interesting facts about the...
