Old Moor RSPB

Due to weather forecast, becoming warm, we decided spending our Bank Holiday Monday at Old Moor in the afternoon with the hope of seeing a dragons about. On arrival we made our way around the ponds before heading off to the Bittern watchpoint as we did we saw 4 Spotted Chasers (2), Azure, Blue Tailed and Large Red Damselflies as we made our way. From the Bittern watchpoint we saw Mallards and Tufted Ducks and once again no Bittern. Other wildlife on the reserve Small Copper and Common Blue Butterflies, other birds of note were the breeding Avocets now with young, Redshanks still about, Sand Martin, Kestrel, Sparrowhawk, Reed Warbler. A great afternoon with much going on birds, Bees, Damselflies, dragonflies, Bugs and Flowers
