Rodley Nature Reserve

Sunday 31st July a.m.
  After our visit to Yeadon Tarn we moved to Rodley Nature Reserve, the temperature
was now up to 18°C. The highlight of our visit here was a Little Egret amongst the Grey
Herons and Ducks. We also saw a pair of Common Terns with a couple of chicks and there
were Little Grebe again we saw a chick on a distant nest as well as Mute Swans with Signets.
A couple of Cormorants flew over and there were some Gadwall Ducks.
An enjoyable morning birding here in the warm weather.
