Lister Park, Bradford

Sunday 26th February a.m.
 An overcast morning with a temperature of 6°C as we went to the pond area where there were
c300 BH Gulls.There were large numbers of Canadas and Mallards, and Tufted Ducks. The Bar-headed
Goose was still present along with Coots,Moorhens  and it was good to see the return of four
Goosander two male and two female. We carried on walking round the Park seeing thousands of
Crocuses flowering, walking past Cartwright Hall we saw a good bronze statue of a Stag. We first
heard a Greenfinch with their distinctive call and then we saw it high in a tree, we saw a Treecreeper
again and a Jay flew into a large tree with all its leaves on, maybe an Olive, so no chance of getting a
a better view. A couple of Mistle Thrush went past cackling as they went and a Wren Briefly broke
cover, there were Blackbirds,Chaffinch,Robin,Blue Tits,LT Tits,Woodpigeons and Corvids also on show.
