A cloudy start to the day as my dad took the dog for a walk this morning with light rain from time
to time but some sunny spells too, temperature 8°C.Back to school for me so here is his report.
A walk through the village and along the Great Northern Trail to Hewenden Viaduct where the main
birds seen were House Martins,Swallows,Robin & BH Gulls on the reservoir dam wall & good
numbers in the surrounding fields.A Grey Heron was also at the edge of the reservoir, not a good
day for photos with just the old compact camera.Near the farm buildings at the end of Station Road
were 6 Pied Wags & 2 Mipits.
Heading towards Hallas Bridge the sun shone on some trees where 3 Willow Warblers were seen
& 5 Mistle Thrushes were eyeing up the plentiful berries from the top of an electricity pylon.At Hallas
Bridge a Dipper gave me the chance of a few photos for Danny's blog.
