Potteric Carr

Family day out once again out to our favourite place near Doncaster the YWT flagship reserve in Potteric Carr.  On arrival we were greeted by a fine male Blackcap singing out his presence around the visitor centre area the Decoy hide gave us Black-headed Gulls, Tufted Duck, Shelduck, Mute Swan, Greylag Goose, Canada Goose and a Cettis Warbler. We then moved off  to the cafe for dinner after which it was the turn of the Willow Pool hide where we saw usual Great Tit, Blue Tit, Long Tailed Tit, Coal Tit, Willow Tit, Reed Bunting, Chaffinch, Dunnock, Little Grebe, Mute Swan, Tufted Duck, Pheasant and Moorhen.

Hawthorn Bank Hide was our last port of call where we were soon put on to a splendid Male Garganey, he did spend most of his time hidden in and amongst the reed base but came out nw and again to say he was still there. Whilst here we picked up a few Sand Martins moving thru

List in no particular order 🙂
