Old Moor RSPB

Well its been a long time since I’ve been here, sorry about that but things went a bit over the top at home, so getting out was put to the back burner for a while. So hopefully we are back and my first outing in a while was back to Old Moor in glorious sunshine the bugs were everywhere. The very friendly Common Darters were numerous and even landing on the hand, Ruddy Darters were plentiful. Brown Hawker seen feasting on a Common Darter, Migrant Hawkers and even Black Darter were seen. Hoverflies were plentiful with a couple of new ones seen

On the bird front waders are now starting to wonder back thro, we saw Greenshank, Ruff, Common Sandpiper, Green Sandpiper. The winter flock of  Lapwing and Golden Plover has started.
