RSPB Dearne Valley, Old Moor

Thursday was another poor day for early August. After early morning rain the forecast was for showers for the rest of the day. We missed those. It was another unseasonably windy day.

We had a visit to RSPB Old Moor in the afternoon. It's only a short trip down the motorway.
The birds were up to their usual tricks when we visit and stayed out of camera range. They like to keep a really good telescopic lens away to ensure their safety and that we'll keep returning trying to get some better photos of them.
We managed a gentle stroll around the reserve and check out each bird hide in turn to see if we could spot any birds to photograph.

A video of our visit is included below.


  1. Nice photos and video. I would be interested to know what camera you used.

    1. Panasonic GH4 Tom. Use both my Panasonic lenses 14-140mm and 100-300mm.
