Dowley Gap

Monday 5th May a.m.
 To round off our mornings birding we moved from Harden Moor through Bingley to Dowley Gap
where the temperature had risen to 12°C.The visit was dominated by Greylag Goslings on the canal,
there were five broods of 9,9,7,6 & 6 great to see them.The Mallards weren't to be out done they also had chicks, we counted 9.There were several Chiffchaffs singing we also saw Pied  & Grey Wags,Robin,
Oystercatcher,Jay & other common species.It was also good to see the Bluebells out in Hirst Wood & the Wild Galic both of whichs perfume filled the air.
