Dowley Gap & Hirst Wood

Saturday 26th September a.m.
 A cloudy morning with a temperature of 11°C at Dowley Gap as we set off for a walk alongside the canal.Mallards were on the canal with plenty Magpies & BH Gulls at the water works, also in this area Pied & Grey Wagtails,Dunnock,Robin,Wren & Chiffchaff.As we crossed the aqueduct a flock of Great,Blue & LT Tits passed by, we then turned into Hirst Wood & took the path at the side of the River Aire.Further along we found more Mallards,Mute Swan & a Goosander which we have missed seeing through the summer.We turned & retraced our steps seeing a Grey Squirrel  & a few more common species of birds on our way back to the car.
