Coach Trip to RSPB Dearne Valley - Old Moor

Coach Trip to RSPB Dearne Valley - Old Moor

The Tree Sparrow Farm is at its best, giving excellent close views of a range of birds including tree sparrow and willow tit. Winter wildfowl are here in their thousands, with the whistle of wigeon filling the air. Watching the nightly murmuration of thousands of starlings is an ever popular way to end a visit, especially when a marauding sparrowhawk or peregrine dashes through, looking for a late meal.
