Return to the Hinksford Hoopoe

Another work trip and another long drive up to West Yorkshire broken by a little birding and where better to make that break than Hinksford to spend more time with the wintering Hoopoe.
A supporting cast of Bullfinch, Mipits and a Green Woodpecker made for an enjoyable trip. Further north I added year ticks with Red Grouse on the moor and a Dipper from the car park at Bolton Abbey.

I dropped into Wanlip Meadow but failed to find the reported Long-billed Dowitcher so that another notch on this years increasing dip list.

Year list now 162
