Saturday 30th April a.m.
   We went to Yeadon Tarn this morning, this is situated near the airport runway.It was a
dry sunny morning although a bit windy the temperture was 13°C.We walked round the
Tarn counting 70 Mallards, 17 Canadas, 10 Coots and 3 Moorhen, most of which were
around the edge of the water. We also saw 6 Starlings, 4 House Sparrow,a Swallow,a
Thrush, as well as a few big metal birds taking off.
   We then moved on to Rodley Nature Reserve which is run by the RSPB. Here we saw
some of the usual water birds 4 Tufted Ducks, 20 Mallards, 10 Canadas, 3 Coots,
5 Greylag Geese, a Lapwing and a Grey Heron. As we were walking round we heard a
few Warblers, although not showing themselves, on the last Pond we saw 2 Common Terns.
