Woke up today with the intention of going to Rodley NR
and Adel Dam but first I thought I'd go have a look for
the Brambling that had been spotted at Park Lane, on the
way up there I spotted 20+ Lapwing in the trailer park field.
When I got there DP was already scouting for the Brambling
and he'd managed to see a couple and then so did I and then a
GSW, what a good start to the day and it got even better only
downfall was that it's a bit dark for photography but still great
to see the amount of activity up there so Rodley and Adel were
forgotten about, DP then said its a shame there's no Treecreeper
and low and behold 2 mins later one showed up which made his
day and then a Nuthatch, a white headed Blackbird and a white
Crow, the lady of the house then came out to see us and brought
with her a cup of coffee for me and DP which was much needed
and appreciated, she was a lovely lady named Denise and told us
about all the wildlife that turns up in her garden, I was amazed.
28 species were seen today in Denise's garden and the field across
the road and there may be some that I've forgotten, overall it was a
fantastic morning's birding, poop for photography but A+ for spotting.
