Yes, I had another trip to Old Moor on Saturday. I really must start varying my birding days out…
Not a bad day’s spotting. Not a good day for waders, but plenty of ducks. A flock of goosanders were there that I hadn’t seen before, and one lone Whooper Swan was floating about dejectedly waiting for its kin to arrive. Surely there should be a lot more of them around now? There also seem to be some Common Gulls joining the black-headeds.
