Cromwell Stroll

   Got out yesterday for the first time in a week due to
   Illness and hospital visits, so popped down to Cromwell
   Bottom NR for a gentle stroll in the nice weather.

   Lots of birds and birdsong about but photography wise
   it was a damp squib 0/10 as everything was distant or
   behind branches or very flighty, it was great to see 3
   Kingfishers or maybe the same one 3 times, Sedge Warbler
   was heard and also what I thought was a Water Rail but
   neither were seen, 34 species were seen and a few unid'd
   I didn't get to see the 2 Common Tern that have been seen
   on the skiing lake which would of been nice.

   Blackbird, Blue Tit, Bullfinch, Canada's, Crow, Chaffinch,
   Chiffchaff, Collared Dove, Dunnock, Garden Warbler,
   Goldfinch, Goosander, Great Tit, Grey Heron, Grey Wagtail,
   House Martin, Jackdaw, Jay, Kingfisher, LTT's, Magpie,
   Mallard, Mistle Thrush, Mute Swan, Robin, Skylark,
   Sparrowhawk, Starling, Swallow, Swift, Willow Warbler,
   Wood Pigeon and a Wren and I've not included Gulls.
   Cuckoo was on telephone wires in Southowram on the way
   to the doctors.
