Dowley Gap and Hirst wood

Saturday 24th November a.m.
 A very dull start to the day with low cloud reducing visibility but clear enough for birding with a temperature of 7°C.On the canal there was a pair of Mute Swans (Yellow Tags 153 & 154),there were three Goosanders, Mallards and Moorhens were also seen.A Kingfisher flew in to the trees at the side of the canal, at the water works there were BH Gulls and a LBB Gull overhead and I counted 30 Pied Wagtails in the Filter Tanks, with two Grey Wagtails.
 I walked into Hirst Wood and saw another four Goosanders  on the River Aire, a Grey Wagtail and another Kingfisher was seen.Heading back when I got to the car a Redwing was seen with several Blackbirds.
