Wednesday's Outing

          Managed to get out & about on wednesday after doing
          a night shift for a week so decided to go to Rodley to
          hopefully spot the Otter and Cetti's Warbler but failed
          on both accounts but it was still an enjoyable outing with
          45 species spotted on the day.

          Bumped into my friend and work colleague Chris T while
          at Rodley and after a quick natter I went off in search of a
          rarity and a lot of wishful thinking.

          Rodley NR-:
          Grey Heron, Robin, Greenfinch, Pochard, Wigeon, Wren,
          Bull, Green and Goldfinch, Little Grebe, Tufted Duck,
          Goldcrest, flock of Linnet, Gadwall, Moorhen, Coot,
          Blue Tit, Great Tit, LBB Gull, BH Gull, Herring Gull,
          Reed Bunting, Corvids, Chaffinch, Canada & Greylag geese

          I then drove over to Adel Dam NR for a nosey and was
          in the first hide when another two friends and cracking
          fella's walked in Graham H and Dave L which was a big
          and nice surprise as they also had travelled from Halifax.

          Adel Dam-:
          Tufted Duck, Goldeneye, Mallard, Blue, Great and Coal Tit,
          Nuthatch, GSW, LTT, Starling, Blackbird, Mistle Thrush,
          Chaffinch, Moorhen, Jay, Gooseander, Gulls galore, Jackdaw,
          Crow, Magpie, Grey Heron, Cormorant, Dunnock, Song Thrush
          Eldwick Moor-:
          Golden Plover 20+, Lapwing, Red Grouse, Commom Gull.
