Lot to learn
In reply to Gardenbirder:
Gardenbirder said:if we did, where would you like to go in addition to LM? I'm hoping there will be nesting Ospreys near Poole Harbour next year (near RSPB Arne), Minsmere is lovely anytime of year, and we usually visit Frampton Marsh before and/or after Birdfair in August, north Norfolk is lovely...oh, there are so many choices.
I wouldn't insist on LM as it's a regular spot for me anyway (at least under normal conditions)! We aren't a big group, but I think we need a big reserve with several hides or we'll hog the spot and somewhere with Summer highlights or change the time! Personally, I want to visit all the places you've mentioned and Minsmere obviously fits all the requirements but I don't know about the facilities at Arne or Frampton. I think North Norfolk is maybe better for birds outside of Summer ... but I'm not that knowledgeable on it, either!
I did think about Bempton for the Gannets and Puffins, but without hides it's probably too weather dependant to book a long time in advance.
A lovely selection of photos Nige, and the weather seemed to have been good, allowing the colours to shine through.

Oh dear, I hope the cancerous growth has been caught in time.
Not a pleasant time to be in hospital, particularly as visiting is restricted in these times.
Fingers crossed from here for a good outcome, for them both.
