What do a marsh harrier, an Egyptian goose and a brambling have in common? …Give up? – They were all seen today at Old Moor of course!
Here’s the list…
At Bolton Ings, the news of the day included: six blackcap, one green woodpecker, a little egret and seven pochard. Full sightings from John Seeviour can be found here. Thanks John.
From Adwick Washland, Vin Browne reported both peregrine and marsh harrier in the late afternoon (thanks Vin) and other sightings from the day included twenty plus avocet as well as two wheatear and a yellow wagtail.
A wheatear at Adwick today
Sadly, that’s it for tonight but one of the best things about spring bird movements is that almost anything can turn up anywhere! With a sunny day forecast for tomorrow, it’s time to get out and enjoy spring in all its glory. You never know what you might find.
Until next time.
Thanks Bridgey - the usual issues: small, far away, windy. So I am just glad I got a clear pic
