Springtime in the Mere....
...and the Moorhens are fighting again. walking around Martin Mere Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust there was a terrible commotion behind me, I turned to see two Moorhens going at it hammer and tongs. Though they appear placid, strolling around the banks of the mere looking for food, fighting is common and often prolonged, with each
bird striking the other violently with the feet and even attempting to push or
drag them underwater.
This was the best image of the group I managed to take. Not one of my best but it makes a change from trains.
