Took a trip down to Cromwell Bottom NR today and it
was very busy with people as kids are on school break
and the weather was good, the bird life also popped out
to play which made it an enjoyable day.
viewing area was full of photographers with top class
equipment and builders up and down in there dumper
trucks as the wildlife group are making a pathway down
the riverside which is a great idea as it gets very boggy
down there, bumped into Dave L while I was there and
its always nice to see Dave.
Plenty of Bullfinch and Robins in the viewing area along
with Blue, Coal, Great and LTT's, also 4 Reed Buntings,
a Nuthatch and what I thought was a Jay but colours
I then took a walk around the reserve where 3 Wren were
seen 4 Grey Heron, 5 Dunnock, 3 Goldfinch, Goosander,
2 Teal and 6 Mallard up by the weir and 2 Buzzard screeching
above the canal, I then took a walk around Pepper Hill but
nothing much about just corvids and a Jay but another 2
Buzzard were above Shibden Valley one headed up to the
Ringby Lane area while the other one disappeared into the
trees at the bottom of the valley.
