A good birding day yesterday with marsh harrier, several kingfisher flights, common tern and juvenile, tuffed duck with 10 chicks, juvenile great crested grebe, pair of reed buntings, reed warbler, a pair of kestrels flying together and the usual supects. But I was convinced there was a fault on my camera as all my shots looked hazy. That is until I got home and cleaned the screen on my camera and my glasses!
There were a couple of close encounters
A puss moth caterpillar was hanging in there.
A thirsty butterfly
The young great crested grebe
And a king fisher plus guard of honor
There is no such thing as a bad day at Old Moor.
sounds like you had a rewarding visit to Old Moor, lovely sightings and photo WB
