Old Moor RSPB

Another trip down to Manvers to call into Old Moor RSPB  with hopefully a few warblers knocking about. On departing from the car on arrival we were greeted by a Common Whitethroat from the nearby bush, good start in then to the reserve itself stopping off at the feeders whilst we waited for the rest of the group to gather. From here we saw Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Chaffinch, Bullfinch, Robin, Pheasant, Woodpigeon, Collard Dove, Blackbird, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Dunnock, Reed Bunting enough comings and goings whilst we waited.

When the group had formed we made our way to the family hide from here we saw Black-headed Gulls, Tufted Duck, Gadwall, Coot, Moorhen, Great Crested Grebes, .

After a while in the family hide we slowly made or way on to the Wader Scrape hide where we did see a couple of waders, there were a number of Lapwings, an Oystercatcher and a few Redshank

From here we also added Mallard, Gadwall, Shoveler, Tufted Duck, Little Grebe and Great Crested Grebe, we added Teal from the Field Pool Hide and caught up with Swallow over the Dragonfly ponds as we made our way back to the cafe for dinner.
