Away trip

Am just back from a visit to Daughter in Leeds. We got around some of the nice places such as Rodley NR, Adel NR, Golden Acre, Eccup, North Cave NR, and on the way back,  Nosterfield NR, and Hartlepool Headland .
Little Egret, 2 Little Owls, Red Necked Grebe, Shore Lark, Treecreeper, Nuthatch, Red Legged Partridge, Redwings were just a few. There seemed to be Roe deer in most of the fields as we travelled about.
Thought I would jot down a few of the memories.

While down near the river Aire I heard a typical Buzzard call but with a clear sky could not pick it out. Then Linda beckoned along the track to a Jay perched on a tree top, calling like a soaring Buzzard. Upon research there have been a number of reports in the area.

I watched some of my first Red Kites at Eccup a few years before they were reintroduced in the Derwent Valley and also found North Cave to be a wonderful area although I suspect it may not be so quiet now. Very nice art work as always. Cheers.

Thanks for kind comment. North cave is indeed busy and growing larger each year. Managed water levels produces good results
