Avocet return.

Posted in All

Can we say this is the first sign of spring? The first of the returning Avocet were on Vinson’s Marsh this morning, just 3 birds. In the coming weeks this number will increases considerably, watch this space..

The traditional winter sleeping mode of newly returned Avocet.

The earliest returning Avocet at Martin Mere occurred on the 8th Feb 2014. It’s not impossible to imagine that this iconic wader will eventually winter on the Dee/Ribble/Morecambe Bay area.
