Shibden Park

The house martins from the Godley Gardens colony arrived back this morning. I also saw a dipper in the stream by the car park - it's been a few years since I last saw one in the park.

The coots have 3 half grown young. This is the third successful year for breeding in the park.

The pair of mute swans are still in residence.

Thank goodness for some House Martins somewhere Ian!! Fewer and fewer nesting locally in the last 2/3 years.
