Dowley Gap

Saturday 19th December a.m.

 A Saturday morning with dry conditions and some sunshine meant I was able to get out to Dowley Gap, Bingley where there was a temperature of 10°C. The waterworks had c40 Pied Wagtails with three Grey Herons over and a Sparrowhawk caused some commotion. On the River five Goosanders were seen and a group of LT Tits and Goldcrests were very mobile. A Nuthatch and a Treecreeper also made appearances and by the canal several Redwings were feeding on the berries. Then there was an invasion of c150 Greylags who circled round before settling down in a near by field.
