Oats Royd pm visit.

                                   The resident Greylag

                         The one small patch of unfrozen water.
                                    Plenty of Chaffinch


With the time at 1500hrs and drizzly mist on the Soil Hill the nearest spot was Oats Royd.
With the late hour most birds had already gone down leaving plenty Chaffinch in the Alders but no Brambling.
A nice little flock of 15 Siskin were flying round but very mobile.
Tons of Alders down there so needs a good checking out if ever I get the time, also plenty cones up on the Gulf making it look ideal for Crossbill.
All the ponds were frozen apart from a small section by the waterfall where the Greylag and white goose were.

There were 7 Roe Deer in the scrub just south of Bridle Stile lane on Sunday afternoon. Is that Dalie Fields?

Thats right Mark the Dailies boundry is Bridle Style Lane right down to the station.
Its well overgrown down there now after the completion of the little used cycle track although at present the old tunnel through to Holmefield is being renovated so theres quite a bit of disturbance.
Be a bit hard for the deer in this weather.
