Old Moor

Leisure day today out with people from Church so birding takes a back seat and chatting seems to take over but birds we saw and some good ones in and amongst the banter, I did manage to pick out a few warblers around Old Moor Sedge Warbler, Willow Warbler,Reed Warbler (good views of this shy bird at Wath Ings Hide) along with Whitethroat here. Also at Wath Ings hide Little Ringed and Ringed Plovers and Redshank on the wader side. All the usual common ducks etc Mallard, Gadwall, Shoveler and Tufted. A good morning beautiful weather once again, no photos, and didnt get down to the new Bolton Ings hide that I think will have to be a day for me
