1st and 2nd January 2023 – Eastern Moors, Derbyshire and RSPB Old Moor, Yorkshire

We have been visiting friends in Sheffield over the new year. On New Year’s Day we accepted the challenges of the weather and had a short walk on the Eastern Moors in the Peak District on the edges of Sheffield. Here I managed a few photographs of birds near feeders.

On the 2nd January the weather was most kind to us and we visited 2 reserves near Barnsley: Wombwell Ings and RSPB Old Moor in the Dearne Valley.
