Preparing for the winter.

A trip to Old Moor RSPB reserve this week unfortunately coincided with work that is being carried out around the area of the Bittern Hide. I had hoped to spend some time in the hide and hoped to see the Water Rails and Kingfisher that have been reported there recently. A change of plan and I decided to spend a little time in the next hide, the Reedbed Hide. There were only a few species here including, Ringed Plover, Coot, Moorhen, and Great Crested Grebe.

Great Crested Grebe.

The Little Grebe caught a fish.

and a Common Darter came to visit.

I did not have long before the weather became too cloudy for decent photography, I wasnt very happy with the Little Grebe shots because the light was very poor.

Only a short day but again some nice shots.
