Trips to St. Ives and Oxenhope

Monday 14th March 15:45 to 16:30 at St.Ives.
After a cold frosty morning it turned into a bright sunny day around 8°C.
Went to St. Ives and saw amixture of birds incuding a couple of Robins
and Magpies. There were around 20 Canada Geese, Mallards, Gulls, a
couple of Moorhens and 6 Coots.Even what looks like a Farmyard Goose.
17:15 to 18:00 Oxenhope.
We moved across to Oxenhope where there were more Canada Geese,
Mallard Ducks and a couple of Gulls on the water.We also caught sight of
a couple of Lapwings in the nearby fields.
