Old Moor RSPB

Getting myself a little bit behind in writing up my posts on this blog this was a visit out to Old Moor again even if it was only for a couple of hours, so this post is going to be short anyways.

The birds were good when we managed to see some as the waters were quiet mostly from most hides. We did manage to see various duck species namely, Wigeon, Gadwall, Teal, Shoveler, the Moorhen and Coot and we finally caught up with a male Goldeneye, beautiful bird it was. Most bird activity was around the feeders i.e. bird garden and Tree Sparrow farm here you could find Blue Tit, Great Tit, Willow Tit, Pheasant, Dunnock, Bullfinch, Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Reed Bunting, Yelllowhammer, Robin, Collard Dove, Woodpigeon, and a few Redwing but the male Brambling still remains elusive once again

The List [in no particular order] ;-

Bullfinch, Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Robin, Blackbird, Redwing, Reed Bunting, Yellowhammer, Wren, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Willow Tit, Collard Dove, Woodpigeon, Teal, Mallard, Pochard, Goldeneye, Wigeon, Shoveler, Gadwall, Coot, Moorhen, Mute Swan, Black headed Gull, Common Gull, Cormorant, Lapwing, Starling, Crow, Canada Goose, Dunnock, Tree Sparrow
