Leighton Moss at dusk

img_9108I’ve never been to Leighton Moss as darkness falls (far too early at this time of year . . .), so I enjoyed watching the bedtime security routines. The tree that looked as if it was covered in snatches of black plastic was actually a perch for cormorants, and in the gloom I saw a pair of pheasants wobbling inelegantly on a branch. All the ducks were in the ponds, and there was a fly-past by an enormous flock of starlings.
