A dull chilly start to the day the temperature was about 4°C, we decided to
take the dog for a long walk through some of the local countryside. The first
birds we spotted were 8 House Sparrows in the center of the village, as we
walked towards the pond at Ellar Carr we saw a Robin there was also a Great
Tit in a tree and a couple of Woodpigeons. On the pond were just 3 Mallards,
further on there were another 2 on the lake. There were also a couple of
Starlings,Blackbirds and good numbers of Crows in the fields and flying overhead.
As we got up to Cullingworth fields there were around 75 mainly BH Gulls feeding
and we saw 20 Lapwings fly into the field to join them. Back through the top of the
recreation ground near the school was a feeding party of 6 Great Tits and 8
Long-tailed Tits. The dog had a good walk and we saw quite a few birds.
