A very quick Old Moor trip…

Went to Old Moor for an hour or so on Sunday. Not too much to see – there were two coach trips of retired folk taking things over a bit, so we couldn’t squeeze into some of the hides (I didn’t even get near the birdfeeders).

Strangely, the Wath Ings hide was virtually bereft of birdlife, which is unusual. Maybe they saw the two coaches parked outside and had similar thoughts to me…

Today’s full list:
Black-headed Gull, Blackbird, Canada Goose, Carrion Crow, Coot, Cormorant, Gadwall, Golden Plover, Grey Heron, Jackdaw, Lapwing, Magpie, Mallard, Moorhen, Mute Swan, Pheasant, Pochard, Robin, Shoveler, Starling, Teal, Tree Sparrow, Tufted Duck, Wigeon

  1. I went to Old Moor today, also for a very quick visit. A nice male goosander flew down right in front of me, and I saw a couple of sandpipers but they were too far away to make out whether they were green or common (both were on the board). The golden plover were the stars though. They looked lovely in the sunshine.Offbeat Gill

  2. Hi Peteyou seem to have given up on your blog. Have you?I’m interested in birds around sheffield and have noticed the lack of Sheffield based information. Compared with Lincolnshire or Derbyshire for example.I live in Heeley and have heard that Moss Valley can be good but haven’t met a real ‘birder’ out there. Do you have any ideas?Rob
