As part of what has seemingly been a short tour of South Yorkshire’s nature reserves (back at work tomorrow unfortunately!) I had a trip to Old Moor today. I was hoping some whooper swans had called in, but unfortunately not. Still quite a lot to see – a few pink-footed geese down on the water, snoozing away with a greylag; a ruff, two green sandpipers, five snipe, at least three redshank and a flock of 18 dunlin; ducks including teal, wigeon, pochard, goosander and a shelduck.
