Old Moor RSPB

A place I hadn’t been for a while so a visit was long overdue on arriving I headed down to the Tree Sparrow Farm where I caught up with a few species like, Siskin, Reed Bunting,  Greenfinch,  Robin, Dunnock, Chaffinch, and of course Tree Sparrows. 

A quick walk then towards the Family Hide where I encountered a very friendly Robin looking for a hand out I think which I didn’t have (remember for next time, hopefully). From the hide itself Black headed Gulls, Tufed Duck, Gadwall,  Mallard, Coot and a few distant Wigeon

Down on to the field pool hide where Mute Swan, Pochard, Teal, Lapwing, Black headed and Common Gulls were seen

Wader scrape hide produced Goosander, Cormorant, Shoveler, Pied Wagtail , Goldeneye (male and Female) to the list along with Great Crested and Little Grebes
