More Tree Sparrows near Brighouse

An early walk up to Woolrow Farm, above Bailiffe Bridge produced good views of Tree Sparrows on the barn by the farm. Two adults were taking food into the barn wall and other birds were perched nearby. It's likely that other birds have already nested and fledged there as well. It seems like this is another established colony (they nested last year) that came from Jay House Lane - about a mile away.
Swallows appear to have nested in the barn as well, and nearby were adult and juv Willow Warblers and a pair of Linnets.
