Naturelog: Morecombe Bay

About a mile from the RSPB reserve at Leighton Moss is the RSPB reserve at Morecombe Bay.

I’m afraid I didn’t post an entry last week; I went camping in Snowdonia at the weekend, far way from any internet connection! What a change it was, from walking across the flat, open marshes to climbing Snowdon. 1,057 more words
