We last visited Leighton Moss (http://www.rspb.org.uk/reserves/guide/l/leightonmoss/) in 2008 and had a great day so we decided to spend another day as we were pretty close to it staying in Kirkby Lonsdale. The weather was meant to be rotten and the below short video was taken from a hide with grey clouds and the wind blowing through the reeds. This in itself is fine, and is pretty relaxing. Not long after the video the heavens opened and it started chucking it down. However after a hot chocolate in the cafe the clouds parted and we were presented with a most glorious afternoon!!

We saw a spoonbill for the first time, saw marsh harriers and then an osprey. Pretty good! The photos are taken throughout the day.
