No wildlife sightings including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned on this blog throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.

Elland Gravel Pits

Looking through some old pics. Who remembers E.G.P. in the good old days with Sedge Warblers in every thicket along with Yellow Hammer and Lesser Whitethroat being a common sight, even a Spotted Sandpiper for good measure in May to July 1990.

           Peregrines use to perch on the cooling towers.

I remember it !! That lagoon was very good for waders and I recall my first Calderdale Great Grey Shrike flew over me as I left the hide on one occasion - must look up the date !
