Old Moor RSPB

Once again out to Old Moor for a couple of hours away from the rat race, this is a great place to relax and watch wildlife go by and meet interesting people. On arrival I planted myself again in the photography part of the first hide near the visitor centre and watched and took pictures of Reed Buntings, Goldfinch, Dunnock, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Wren, Robin, Collard Dove, Woodpigeon, Greenfinch, Chaffinch, and Blackbird. After a couple of hours I moved off onto the reserve and saw a couple of butterfly species Orange-tip and Comma were once again on the wing, from the wader scrape hide I saw Oystercatcher, Redshank, and plenty of Black-headed Gulls. I was once again out of time and still had seen no summer migrants 😦

Day List in no particular order 🙂
