10 miles 1 year tick

was hoping for early morning walk but it was chucking down with water!
at 10 headed for stoney royd cem no lesser spotted woodpecker but 15 goldfinch, 2 jays,2 redwings, then doubled back on myself towards siddal top lane then to coal pit lane which was quite good with 1 golden plover, 27 common gulls. northowram and bank top held nothing :(
beacon hill via green lane had 2 green woodpeckers which are a stunning bird in flight and definatley brightend up a misty walk.
from beacon hill to claremount 4 black headed gulls,23 house sparrows chulpping away was a great sound.
hollins greave lane and bradford old road held nothing just a mistle thrush
ploughcroft had 7 greenfinch and up at swalesmoor 1 reed bunting,1skylark,1 meadow pipit.
down ploughcroft lane to mill lane then old mill lane was devoid of birds apart from the lone mournful song of the robin.
the hebble brook below the railway station was too fast flowing for any grey wagtails or dippers shame

well my 'green' year list stands at 68
