RSPB Old Moor

RSPB Old Moor is now managed by the RSPB but was actually developed by Barnsley Borough Council from reclaimed coal mining works.

The 250 acre reserve is predominantly wetland, for example open freshwater, marsh and reed beds. However, this does not mean only wildfowl and waders are to be seen here. Trees, scrub and meadow attract many others to the reserve, including a thriving Tree Sparrow colony.

There are five hides and a garden bird feeding area. The visitor centre includes a shop, and toilet and cafeteria facilities.

A short distance away is Broomhill Flash, Wombwell Ings and Edderthorpe Flash.

Below is a list of species I have seen on my visits to the reserves at different times of the year.
