Reflections: At Old Moor RSPB reserve near Barnsley there weren’t many birds which led me to concentrate on the patterns they make in the water– Wigeon have such beautiful feather patterns anyway, and this pair drifted close to the Family Hide. They weren’t put off by the flock of garrulous men in the hide like I was! Even the Black Headed Gull, with it’s winter plumage of one dark cheek-spot rather than a fully dark head, looked beautiful. Conditions: Mild, wet morning predicted to brighten later. Temperature: Max 10- Min 4c.
