News of a Curlew Sandpiper at Marshside on Saturday drew Eddie and I to this excellent Southport reserve. The bird was nowhere to be seen, but plenty of other stuff kept us occupied...
Nothing had prepared us for this little guy: a leucistic Sedge Warbler, standing out like a sore thumb. Actually, the birders parked opposite the bird on double-yellow lines grabbed our attention first.
Next stop: Martin Mere, just a hop, skip and a jump away.
