Old Moor RSPB

The day stared with running thru a couple of Patch sites before going out to Old Moor the first port of call was Cheesegate Nab in the hope of Ring Ouzels moving thru but alas all we got sight of were Wheatear [Video Link], Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, a few Carrion Crows, a Cormorant gave us a fly thru. We moved off towards the Ingbirchworth area to find more Wheatears Meadow Pipits, Pied Wagtails and a couple of Grey Partridge legging it down the road a move to Ingbirchworth Res. gave us nothing new for the day so it was onto Old Moor RSPB near manvers.

On arrival we decided to go along warblers way to hopefully  hear and see some warblers fresh in from migration what we did see were Bullfinch, Chaffinch, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Long Tailed Tit, Chiffchaff, Willow Warblers, Blackcap and Whitethroat at the hide, Bolton Ings area, Black Headed Gull, lesser Black Backed Gull, Great Crested Grebe, Pochard, Gadwall [Video Link], Teal, Mallard, Mute Swan, Shoveler, Tufted Duck.
