Saltaire

A short walk at Saltaire today on our way to pick Abigail up from school in Heckmondwike.

Not a lot happening.

A dull, muggy sort of day with lots of flies and with the river Aire looking quite dirty and having a definite 'hum' with the lack of rain.

The woods were eerily quiet except for 2 noisy Jay with young Jay calling and 4 calling Nuthatch.

The waterworks had a good supply of Black Headed Gull including juvs.

Also here, a Herring Gull and 2 Oystercatcher.

The fencing around the waterworks and large bushes now make getting clear pictures difficult.

A Heron was on watch on the river.

Along the river 5 Grey Wagtail were seen at different spots and a Juv. Moorhen.

No Goosander seen - which is unusual.

A visit to the park cafe and a walk across the bridge brought with it a few Black Headed Gulls, a good few Canada Geese and one Greylag Goose.

The canal held a good few Greylag Geese with some well grown Goslings.
