Harold Park,Bradford

Thursday December 27th a.m.
It was a cloudy morning with some light showers and a temperature of 4°C
during our visit this morning.It was good to see the return of the Black Swan
with the Mute Swans and a female Goosander  which was having a snooze
and wouldn't lift her head for a snap.There were a lot of Coots with the usual
Mallards,Moorhen,BH Gulls,Canadas and Tufted Ducks. There was still two
Great Crested Grebes present and we were treated to a Cormorant flying
round the far end of the lake then landing briefly before taking off again.
