Burton Mere RSPB
Roadtested the new Burton Mere RSPB wetlands today with John Roberts and had a decent day with a great white egret giving excellent views infront of the new double-sided hide while at the reception viewing area a pec sand was showing very well. Four curlew sands were also seen from here but a trip round to the Inner Marsh Farm hide produced 14 of these waders and 2 spot reds. We also called in at the new wonderfully named Donkey Stand flash at Parkgate and had 2 little stint, greenshank, c120 dunlin and c20 ringed plover. Burton Mere looks a promising site and won't be surprised if a few more goodies turn up here.
