2 Little Egrets were showing slight signs of courtship and display this morning on the River Calder near Dewsbury.I have never seen so many small fish in the river and in spot below Earlsheaton i noted 8 Goosander,8 Cormorants,4 Grey Herons,2 Little Egrets and a Kingfisher all fishing in the same pool.

Also this morning 4 Green Sandpipers mainly frequenting the pebble beds on the calder about 150 yards up from the footbridge at the bottom of Healy Road Ossett.

There is a family of Grey Wagtails with 2 parents feeding 5 youngsters on the wing on the concrete structures just to the righr of the Industrial Estate at the bottom of Healy Road.
