We took Abigail to Shibden Park this morning to feed the birds.
A beautiful sunny outing and the park was not too busy early on.
While Abi and Sue were in the play area and later while when they had a boat and train ride I had a long look around the lake and in the woods.
Nothing special came along, in fact the woods were mega quiet, with just Robins singing.
A Raptor, high, east, was the highlight - a Sparrowhawk I believe.
A text from PD this afternoon, of an Osprey over his area, had me scanning South of me.
Its would be a long way from Bradshaw, and although I did get a 'large bird' moving slowly way over to the west It could have been "anything".
I did get a photo of a large Gull from the garden?
But it could be a Cormorant or a Diver species?
Or maybe another Osprey?
Now where are those straws I'm clutching at?
Sparrowhawk, Black Headed Gull, Mute Swan, Coot, Moorhen.
Canada Goose, Robin, Wren.
A few large Gulls over was about all.
Plenty of Robins singing though.
