Dowley Gap

 Saturday 13th November a.m.

 A lovely sunny morning feeling mild at 10°C as I walked alongside the canal and river Aire at Dowley Gap.  A very enjoyable walk but not many birds around, twelve Pied Wagtails were seen at the water works, others were Jay, Robin, Grey Wagtail, Wren, Mallard and Goosander.  The highlight was seeing a Kingfisher as I walked alongside the canal it perched in a couple of places but soon flew off with disturbance from cyclists, joggers and dog walkers.

Lister Park

Sunday 7th November a.m.

A cloudy blustery morning at Lister Park where the temperature was 9°C, the Lake held a large number of Gulls mainly BH but a couple of Commons, Herring and LBB were amongst them.  There were c100 Canadas grazing on the grass above the lake and there were 25 Tufteds on the water.  Good to see a couple of Grey Wagtails and a charm of c30 Goldfinch flew over the lake, I later saw a couple of them feeding in the trees, also two Mute Swans on the water.
