Bradshaw - Holdsworth - Oats Royd

12:15 - 15:00

A local jaunt today, started off with nasty drizzly stuff but things improved.

And, although it remained dull and windy, the wet stuff took a hike.

Bradshaw Park:

2 Pied Wagtail on the bowling green.

A exhaustive search of Holdsworth Copse area was disappointing.

Oats Royd:

Lots of singing Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff.
Long Tailed Tit, Bullfinch calling, 2 Coal Tit, 2 Moorhen, Heron.

Also hereabouts Meadow Pipit, Greenfinch.

A detour past Brandy Hall proved to be a good move with a distant Wheatear seen and 2 Swallow overhead, the first Swallow of the outing.

A couple of Linnet were on the wires as I came down the home straight.

Not a bad outing really, we are short of some heat in the weather.
