28/01/2012 Old Moor RSPB

Yellowhammer: Today I attended one of the best RSPB visitor officer meetings I have been asked to attend. It was at the fabulous RSPB Old Moor Nature Reserve, which I have never before.

The meeting itself was OK but on our lunch break I took off with a few colleagues to see a bit more of the reserve and came across STUNNING Yellowhammer and Tree Sparrows everywhere, made the meeting that much better!! Other highlights were at least 8 Goosander on the pools seen from the wader hide and a Green Sandpiper also from the warder hide.
