Lister Park, Bradford

Saturday 4th February a.m.
 On the way home we called in to Lister Park to have a quick look round
before the forecast snow arrived, still cold at -0.5°C. A look on the pond
first where we saw Canadas,Mallards,Moorhen,Coot and Tufted Duck. The
Feral Pigeons were in their usual tree occasionally having a fly round as a flock
when something startled them. At the far end of the pond up towards Cartwright
Hall there was 87 Canadas trying to feed on the frozen grass, our escapee Bar-
Headed Goose was still with them, most of the pond at this end was also frozen.
There were also BH Gulls flying around.
