High Royd

This morning I went to see if Andy's Shoveler were still there but drew a blank
2 pairs Teal
1 Canada Goose
4+ Coot and similar number of Moorhens
1 Sparrowhawk
Lots of Chiff's and Nuthatches singing plus 2 Willow Warblers
1 Great spotted Woodpecker
c50 Carrion Crows on the filter beds
The bonus for me was a new colony of Rooks and 9 occupied nests

Dave they kept disappearing when i was there, liked the left of the pool behind all the willow.

Sorry that should have been, right of the pool.

I know the bit you mean Andy - yes they could still be there, there is so much that cannot be seen from the canal bank. Some good habitat but those willows could take over the whole site!
