Old Moor RSPB

Well today should have been a friend group outing to Leighton Moss RSPB but turned out to be an outing to Old Moor for us due to people dropping out of the trip. We were greeted by a few Chiffchaff calling away around the car park area along with a single Linnet, walking towards the visitor center a male Blackcap was seen along with 2 females in and out of the ivy. We made our way straight to the family hide hearing on our way a few Willow Warblers, settling in to the hide we were we soon on to the Mediterranean Gulls along with a single Redshank, Sand Martins, Black headed Gulls, Oystercatchers, Mallards, Gadwall, Coot and Moorhen.

On then to Wath Ings hide were we saw Little Grebe, Lapwing,  lots of Sand Martins and Swallows moving thru on the right side of the hide, Mute Swan, Tufted Ducks and a Common Buzzard

Back on then to the Wader Scrape hide were we picked up the Avocets along with Shovelers. Finally around the Garden feeder Hide we saw Dunnock, Yellowhammer, Bullfinch, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Reed Bunting, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Greenfinch, Chaffinch
