Park Lane Bonanza

        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.
