A group of 13 of us went to Old Moor in the Dearne Valley, just south of Barnsley, on a beautiful bright winter day. We surprised ourselves with a group total of 51 species.
The highlight for many was the fantastic kingfisher perched just 3 metres in front of one hide.
Although nothing new was added to our running list, some of the younger members of our party managed quite a few 'lifers'.
We had fabulous views of Tree Sparrows, Bullfinches, Yellowhammer and Reed Buntings (pictured below).

Some of us went on to Pugney's Country Park (near Wakefield) to try and see the Great Northern Diver that has been over-wintering here, but sadly without success.
