Well, the rain wasn’t so bad and I had a trip to Old Moor yesterday. There was quite a lacklustre start to the day bird-wise, but things picked up over the course of the day with a greenshank (my first of the year), 3 green sandpipers, 7 ringed plovers, a common tern, a juvenile shelduck, great views of a kingfisher perched by the Family Hide (which flew off just before I pressed the shutter on my camera…) and bullfinches and a stock dove among the birds on the feeders.
I see on BirdGuides that today a little egret’s turned up. Damn it!
Here’s some pics from yesterday:
