Stocksbridge, Keighley Nature Reserve

Saturday February 23rd a.m.
 The day started well with a Pheasant in the garden when I pulled the curtains off,
which after a quick dash for the camera I managed to get a snap of.
 It was a frosty start with a temperature of -1°C with overcast skies as we made
our way to the BOG members Nature Reserve at Stocksbridge in Keighley.We
joined other members in the hide seeing a good variety of birds including Canadas,
Mallards,Moorhen,BH Gull,Common Gull,Grey Heron,Kingfisher,Bullfinch,Redpoll,
Siskin,Reed Bunting,Long-tailed Tit,Greenfinch and other common species. This good
variety of birds & some good company made for an enjoyable mornings birding.
