hard going but not a bad day

well a nice walk today from siddal to salterhebble then elland gravel pits up through cromwell wood to southowram and down coal pit lane back home about 9 miles

very little between siddal and salterhebble except 2 jays,it was even worse from salterhebble to the gravel pits with nothing of note seen.

Good photos Darrell, Herons are always difficult as they are easily spooked.
