Harold Park

Saturday 22nd November a.m.
 A foggy start to the day as we headed for Harold Park in the Low Moor area of Southern Bradford with a temperature of 10°C.The fog was clearing as we went through Denholme & by the time we reached Queensbury there was sunshine & blue skies, but as we went through Shelf moor we could see a bank of fog where we were heading.We carried on as the fog got thicker, but it was swirling around & there were glimpses of brightness which was the case at Harold Park.
 On the water were Coot,Moorhen,Mallard,BH Gull,Gt C. Grebe,Tufted Duck & a Juvenile Mute Swan which had some number rings on its legs.Walking around the park we saw Magpies,Blue Tits,Great Tits & good to hear & see a Robin in full song.
