There has been some interesting birds close to our recording area recently. There has been 4 famous Waxwings visiting a berry laden tree in Tesco’s car park on Halifax road with a good number of birders photographing the birds and they even made news in the local press!
I so far have missed the birds however, there was good news as I called into Harold Park and found a Kingfisher feeding metres away from people feeding the ducks!
I have not recorded the species there before.
Last year a semi tame male Shoveler spent the winter at Wibsey Park lake.
So today I went to see if he had returned and sure enough he had. So if your in the area check him out!
