Went to the tip at Lee Bridge this morning. Just unloading when I heard a Dipper call as it flew overhead heading upstream from Dean Clough towards Old Lane/Holmfield. A great bird for such an industrial area and a nice surprise.
I also got a call from my Auntie who lives at Queensbury. Seen 2 different looking birds this morning in the garden with a tufts on their heads and having looked through the book thought they could be Waxwings !. Alerted BS who promptly found 6 birds around Moor Close Road. Well done Bri and Auntie D of course. See 'West Yorkshire Birding' blog for report and photos.
