Now That’s a Good Friday

As today was forecast to be the only decent day of the long weekend I decided to get up early and make the most of it. The RSPB reserve at Old Moor in South Yorkshire was my venue of choice and it didn’t disappoint.

Spring is in the air and I was hoping to see the great crested grebes perform their weed dance. They did start rising out of the water and nodding at each other, but I think she may have had a headache and it quickly fizzled out and they went for brunch instead.

A little grebe got up close and personal and gave me an eyeballing.

These two should really have got a room, I don’t know which one looks most suprised!

The star of the day for me though was this Redshank who looked great in the spring sunshine and then invited a new bird for me, a Dunlin to join her for lunch.

All in all a very Good Friday, enjoy your Easter break.
