Local walk to Hallas Bridge

Saturday April 21st a.m.
A cloudy start to the day with the odd sunny spell as we took the dog for a walk through the
village and down to Hallas Bridge, the temperature was 5°C. We saw our first Swallows of the
year in the village along with Chaffinch,Collared Dove,House Sparrow,Goldfinch,Pied Wagtail and
other common species. A couple of Canadas flew over as we went down to Hallas Beck and
when we got to the bridge after waiting a few minuites a pair of Dippers appeared flying upstream.
They soon came back and we got a good view of them and a couple of snaps.
