Some sunshine this afternoon so we decided to pay a quick visit to St Ives near Bingley,
the temperature up to a balmy 4.5°C.Fairly quiet here with Canadas,BH Gulls,Mallards,
Coots & Moorhens on the water & with no food in the bird feeders very little to see at the hide.
We walked round the Coppice Pond seeing a Robin & the highlight of our visit a Treecreeper.
This was just in front of us starting at the bottom of a tree & searching every crevice in the bark
for food,never staying still as it made its way up the tree making it difficult to get a decent snap of.
Back home the slow thaw of snow continues & a few flowers are emerging with an Iris adding a
bit of spring colour.
