Harold Park & Park Dam,Bradford

Sunday January 13th a.m.
 A cloudy,frosty start to the day with a temperature of -1°C on our arrival at Harold Park.
It was good to see the Black Swan with the Mute Swans,Canadas,Mallards,Coots,Moorhen,
BH Gull,Common Gull & Tufted Ducks.There was a Grey Heron on the island with a pair of
Great Crested Grebe nearby.
 We moved on to the nearby Park Dam where there were 43 Canadas in a nearby field with 3 on
the water.Others on the water were Mallards,Moorhen,Coot,BH Gull,Common Gull,Tufted Duck
Gt C. Grebe and for the first time at this location we saw 2 male & 1 female Goosander. A Grey
Heron flew over and then as we were leaving a Cormorant circled and landed near the Goosanders,
with other common species we saw a good number of birds.
