A cloudy morning with some wind blowing making the 4°C temperature feel cold, I took a different route for my exercise today heading down to Hallas Bridge and up the other side of the valley. From here I could see yesterdays route which was across Hewenden Viaduct and round the reservoir and below was Hallas Bridge and Goit Stock Wood with Cullingworth on the other side.
Heading back down to Hallas Bridge there was a Grey Heron on a small pond catching fish and soon I heard a Chiffchaff which I finally saw high in a tree.
I followed Hallas Beck upstream through the wood stopping to watch a noisy Nuthatch, which was soon joined by a Treecreeper and then a Gt Spotted Woodpecker. I then turned round and headed downstream towards the waterfall seeing a Grey Wagtail land on a stone in the beck. As I was taking some pictures of the waterfall I noticed a Dipper just in front of me joined by a second so I was able to get some pictures.
Others seen were Chaffinch, Wren, Lapwing, Pheasant, Canadas and Goldfinch.
