Harold Park & Park Dam

From Saturday 27th September a.m.
 We had no time for birding this morning as I was pursuing my other hobby Taekwondo,
my sister & I were attending a seminar in Mansfield.This means I can pick up from yesterday when after our visit to Leeming we went to Harold Park on the other side of Bradford.Here there were a
couple of Great Crested Grebes,Mallards,Tufted Ducks,Canadas,BH Gulls,Moorhen around 50 Coots.
 We then moved down the road to Park Dam with the temperature now up to 14.5°C & some bright
sunshine.Here there were Canadas grazing in a nearby field, 4 Little Grebes were on the water along with 3 GC Grebes.Also Coots,Tufted Ducks,Moorhen & good to see the 2 Adult Mute Swans with still 7 healthy Juveniles.A Grey Wagtail landed on a stone in the distance & a sight first as a couple
of Jays flew over.The Canadas landed on the water making a big splash & soon it was time to go again.
