Another wet outing, with very poor light.
I thought I'd give Coach Road, Lightcliffe a coat of looking at this aft. to escape the gale - very wet and windy here as well though.
The Raggalds football field had a large contingent of Lapwing and Starling as I passed, going, but none there on my return.
Nothing much seen going down Coach Road (as I wondered if a bit of tree was going to send me to the promised land) until the very bottom of the track.
Here, c10 Long Tailed Tit were flitting about.
A couple of Mallard flew overhead and a couple of Woodpigeon were hunched up in a large tree,looking miserable.
A few Blue Tit and 2 Goldcrest were here also, and a welcome sight early in the New Year for me - M/F Bullfinch.
A Great Spotted Woodpecker called from neaby but it stayed out of sight in the dark trees.
Wren, Chaffinch,Blackbird, a few Small Gulls and a few Corvids completed the outing.
No Winter Thrushes or Brambling popped out.The birds that I was hoping for.
Not a bad session all things considered.
Coach Road - before the rain
