Leighton Moss

entry picture

A delightful trip today
to nearby Leighton Moss Reserve
A wetland and nature trail 
with so much wildlife to observe 

In a clear blue, cloudless sky
the sun shined high and very bright
A day to lift your spirits 
a most welcome treat and delight 

A heavy frost overnight
left patches of ice on the ground
The warmth of the sun felt good
when a sunny spot came around

We forgot our bino’s
and the packet of wild bird seed
But that didn’t stop us 
from watching on as they came to feed  

The landscape was amazing 
tall, wispy reeds lined the pathway
The lakes still partly frozen 
even though the sun shone all day 

We saw lots of feathered friends 
we didn’t recognise them all 
We met some helpful folk though
who knew each one just from their call

We are total novices 
but we spotted a few we know
We hope with regular trips
our knowledge will grow and grow 

Our first trip to Leighton Moss
a great way to spend the day 
Next time we will pack a bag
with all the things we forgot today 

We joined the RSPB
whilst on our visit today 
Now we can visit again for free 
each and every day

Julie,
Another well described scene of mother nature and joy it brings to us all.
Thank you for this
Keith
