A gloomy Martin Mere

As i was passing Martin Mere at the weekend, i called in to see if there was any sign of the Whooper Swans returning from Iceland, sadly there was only a few early arrivals, and the gloomy drizzly weather meant not a great photography day, but still managed a few shots

They reckon there are 12,000 Pink Footed Geese on the reserve at the moment, lots about on my visit, coming in to feed on the spuds!

I counted six Whoopers in total, but i am sure they will be arriving in great numbers fairly soon
