Its worth a visit

Winter Visitors still as yet in short supply in our area.

Winter visiting birds are still short of showing any real presence on my patch.Thrush numbers are still very minimal with only about 8 Redwings on the Reserve at Kerries Foods though there was at least 10 Blackbirds and 5 Robins on the Reserve this morning

There was 105 Pied Wagtails feeding on one of the sprinkler beds at Dewsbury Sewage Works this morning at 08:20 hours but these birds had virtually disapeared 90 minutes later.Goosanders are still only appearing very sporadicaly with only a single bird present on the Calder between Ossett and Dewsbury this morning.As in the previouse few years Meadow Pipits have been virtualy none existant in this area with only one day showing signs of birds in passage and even then this was very short lived
