The first 'winter' visit to Martin Mere for me, I just adore this place and the winter for me is the best time to visit to see the Whooper Swans that migrate here every year to spend the winter on the Mere and the surrounding fields. They are quite majestic birds, and I look forward to many visits over the coming winter months. When we went Sunday there wasn't many birds on the Mere, the trust were quoting about 300 had arrived back, but probably saw about 50. But there was still lots of activity on the Mere, stacks of Greylags which were very vocal as normal, not many Pink Foots about, I guess they were still out feeding in the fields. But an enjoyable visit, and I look forward to the next visit..... maybe next week, a whole week off work yay!!
