Harold Park

Saturday 3rd October a.m.
 Another foggy start to the day as I made my way over to Harold Park on the southern side of Bradford with a temperature of 9°C.The usual Mallards,Coots,Tufted Duck & BH Gulls with a Herring Gull making a quick visit but it was mobbed by the BH Gulls.Good to see the pair of GC Grebes still with two Juveniles one of which flew a couple of circuits round the lake,maybe thinking of moving on.There were three Mute Swans, they all had yellow tag numbers which were 162,212 & 900.I had a walk up to the pond where the family of Moorhen we saw earlier in the year were doing well with the five juveniles nearly as big as their parents.From here I moved down the road to Park Dam, report to follow.N.P.
