Good day friends ;-)
Hopefully you are all well today ?
Sightings are of average proportions in the Sacred A4 so I will therefore try to deliver them in an average manner ...
I may struggle to raise my standards so high though ...
So .. Old Moor to begin ..
Reported from the Wader Scrape were 3 dunlins, 5 ringed plovers, a common sandpiper, a green sandpiper, oystercatchers, lapwings, a little egret, 8 teals and a sparrowhawk ..
A kingfisher was seen on the Field Pool and there was a great spotted woodpecker, male and female bullfinches and willow tits seen in the Bird Garden ..
Over on Broomhill Flash were a common sandpiper, red-legged partridges, a lesser black-backed gull and 2 common terns ...
A final report came from Wombwell Ings where the 2 wood sandpipers are still present along with a black-tailed godwit and a grey heron ..
And that's it for today ...
More tomorrow !!
Have a great evening everyone :-)
