After getting an invite to meet up with some of the Birdforum members I went to Martin Mere.
There was nothing about which is pretty normal for this time of the year , just the usual Mallard, Lapwings and Moorhens. In a couple of months you won't be able to move for whooper Swans and Geese, I am hoping to film them and post the video of thousands of geese and swans coming in.
There where 3 Marsh Harriers to be seen all far off, but after sitting in the United Utilities hide for a while they did come in closer, this was the best shot I got, but they where still a long way off.
After going to a couple of hides we decided to take a walk around the captive area in the reserve, I didn't catch the name of all the birds as they are from all over the world, but here are the best of the day.
A good day and nice to put faces to names.
All shot taken with Nikon D70 + Sigma 170-500mm
