Stocksbridge NR

Saturday 8th November a.m.
 A bright start to the day with a temperature of 7°C on arrival at the BOG members reserve at Stocksbridge in Keighley.Danny was having a lie in after his trip to Richmond in North Yorkshire
with his college so I was on my own.The first bird I saw from the hide was a Grey Wagtail, a good start, then in a tree in front of the hide was a bird which needed the bins to ID, it was a Sparrowhawk. A Grey Heron flew across the water & landed on the far bank & then did some fishing.Others seen included Blue,Great & Coal Tits,BH Gull,Mallard,Moorhen,Dunnock & Robin. N.P.
