Old Moor RSPB

Old Moor seems to be the place for me to be this year and I found myself there again in glorious sunshine on Friday the 30th , might have been a bit too much sun today I believe it reached the 80° degree mark, for late September that’s something. I took along the Macro lens today in the vain hope of a few late Darters there was a load of Common Darters about one even graced the hat I was wearing. Along with the Common were a few Migrant Hawkers
