Low Wood area Keighley

Sunday 2nd May a.m.

  Another chilly cloudy morning with sunny spells developing from a start temperature of 4°C in the Low Wood area of Keighley.  This is one of the best Bluebell woods in the local area and I was pleased to see them flowering as I went through the wood, I would guess they will be at their best in the next week or so.  Plenty birds in the woods with Blackcap, Chiffchaff, Nuthatch, LT Tit, Wren, Robin and Song Thrush seen.  The canal had Goosander, Mallards with a couple of chicks, Grey Heron and Greylags with loads of goslings. I was pleased to briefly see a Pied Flycatcher, others being Garden Warbler, Pheasant, Chaffinch, Swallow, Canada and Dunnock. Also good to see some BOG birders out doing a survey of the area.
