Old Moor RSPB

Potteric Carr was shut today so on the chance of a Bittern we ended up at Old Moor which had been getting up to 2 coming in to roost most days, but today was not one of those days. We had a look at the new hide next to the visitor which is more photo friendly, bigger, and further into the garden itself. other birds we saw today included Grey Partridge, Wigeon, Gadwall, Teal, Little Grebe, Great Crested Grebe and a Sparrowhawk hunting around the feeding areas looking for its meal.
