Dowley Gap

Saturday 27th October a.m.
 On arrival at Dowley Gap the temperature had risen a notch to 5°C with low cloud overhead making taking decent pictures difficult.A walk on the canal side brought two Mute Swans(Yellow Tags 153 &154),Mallards,Moorhen,Jay and an obliging Grey Heron.At the water works there were c50 BH Gulls,Jackdaws and Magpies,I counted 20 Pied Wagtails in the filter tanks and a single Meadow Pipit.On the way through Hirst Wood Blue Tits,Blackbirds,LT Tit and Robins were seen,the River Aire was quiet with just a few Mallards present.
 I walked back to the canal where the highlight of the morning came when I saw a Kingfisher fly past in to the trees.I caught up to it but in poor light picture taking was not easy, it moved a couple of times  before flying off.
