a dull and wet day

a very wet and dull day today

walked about 9 miles around southowram with a sneaky detour to lightcliffe

skylark 1 in fields at siddal
grey wagtail 2 a pair displaying at siddal
pied wagtail 1 beacon hill
jay 1 siddal brickworks
tawny owl 1 calling at shaw hill

the birding was quiet

coal pit lane no doubt named after a nearby coal pit,this place looks good for birds

'judd walls'

judd walls are very common in this part of west yorkshire,built from quarry waste to support the quarry,the wall on the left is over 10 meters in height

got home around mid afternoon then took another walk.
