Booth Wood Res'r

I had a short time there this morning on the way up to the M62. I scanned the ridge and located a large swan coming in from height and thought the likelyhood would be a Whooper. It turned out to be a juv Mute Swan which did not dissapoint me as mutes can be scarcer in Calderdale than Whoopers nowadays!
Not a lot else there other than c130 Woodpigeons heading SW, 30 Fielfare and 2 Redwings heading west.

Apart from EGP I never get a Mute swan on the annual list.

There were 3 last year on the mill pond about half a mile on the left past the old Triangle pub. Not sure if they are still there as can't see for the trees in summer but will check in the next week or two.
