Dowley Gap & Hirst Wood

Saturday 12th October a.m.
 It was a dull gloomy start to the day with spells of drizzle & a temperature of 10°C on our
arrival at Dowley Gap.Along the canal there were a pair of Mute Swans & a few Mallards,
the water treatment area held BH Gulls,Pied Wagtails & a single Grey Wagtail.As we went
over the aqueduct a Nuthatch was in the top of a tree & a Jay & a pair of Canadas flew over.
On the River Aire were more Mallards & a single female Goosander, on our way back we
also saw Goldfinch,Wren & Robin.
