Sue's 97 year old dad received a penalty notice today, for speeding in Leeds!
Wrong Reg. Wrong man.
His 3 wheeled walker "ain't go not engine, man"]
14:00 - 16:00 (dark).
A much better day, weatherwise, today.
After some jobs in Bradford City centre this morning, Sue dropped me at Ogden Lane this aft.
A quick nosey at Back Lane brought with it a Pheasant, Stock Dove and a distant skein of 29 Geese, in silhouette, over Mixenden.
Thinking B.S. might be over that area, I phoned him.
In the meantime the Geese headed my way and juggling with the phone and the video setting on my camera, I managed to make a pigs ear of the whole process.
I think they are Greylag Geese,(DJS 's big conks) but I cannot get much light into the photos to discern the colours - maybe someone out there might 'enlighten' me?
The Geese veered off East towards Soil Hill
A M. Tufted Duck and c50 Small Gulls were on the water.
As I was walking along the prom a Twin Prop. aircraft passed fairly low overhead.
The west side path proved uneventful but a short walk up the stream path at the N.E. end paid dividends with a Dipper down in the gloomy Clough stream.
A second Dipper left the waters edge as I headed down the east side path.
A Robin and Blue Tits were here also.
C12 Goldfinch were in the plantation as I crossed Back Lane on my way to Coal Lane, Ned Hill Track, Percy Rd and home.
My first Little Owl of 2018 took some extracting from a tree, in near darkness, as I neared home.
A photo, with the camera set for night photography, did actual capture the distant bird.
(Pleasing to see a Nuthatch at New Bank garden centre, West Vale, yesterday).
