One of the benefits of where we’ve moved to is that we are now only a few minutes drive from Hatfield Moors Boston Park site (where we Followed Up On Fungi last October). I’ve been looking forward to re-visiting the site and today we did.
We took the binoculars and a notepad, but unfortunately, there weren’t that many birds to be seen, save for a lot of very noisy Black-headed Gulls in their winter plumage, some mallards and great tits.
We also had the privilege of seeing either a Merlin or a Sparrowhawk – I’m not used to using the binoculars, yet, and I just couldn’t get them to focus properly *sigh*. I was really excited, but so frustrated!
Wonderful blue skies after all the snow!
The wind was blowing a fair gale! At one point we really struggled to walk against it.
Even though it was only afternoon, the sun was low in the sky.
The place was rather flooded and we had to wade through some rather deep mud too!
A lovely walk on a blustery afternoon and somewhere we will certainly be visiting more recently now we live closer!
