Hallas Bridge

Saturday 9th January a.m.

 A bitterly cold morning with a temperature of -4°C and yesterday evenings snow compacted and frozen overnight leaving paths and roads like bottle ice. So with the sun out it was with great care that I went for a walk down to Hallas Bridge and up to Bents Lane.  A scan of Hallas beck produced my first Dipper of the year with Nuthatch, Robin, Bullfinch and Goldfinch also seen.  There was a constant flow of Gulls overhead with both BH Gulls and Herring Gulls noted.  From higher up above bents Lane a Kestrel landed on a Pylon with Carrion Crows on another Pylon.  There was a good view of the snow covered Cullingworth and Hewenden Viaduct from here.  Walking back I saw Starling, Blue Tit, Mistle Thrush, Canadas and House Sparrow
