We popped along to Middleton on Sunday afternoon primarily to see the starlings at dusk, so we arrived with just enough time to do the wetlands circular walk, including a couple of coffee stops. What we didn't allow for was the mud slowing us down.
We took a few photos from the hide, nothing spectacular but nice just the same:
After they had settled we did see a couple of Sparrowhawks but the Starlings weren't bothered and refused to pop back up. So off back through the mud and to the car park pretty much in the dark.
