Walk along River Aire from Bingley to Shipley - never seen the river completely frozen on stretches at Myrtle Park, Hirst Wood & Shipley, with steam rising where the water was fast flowing. Birds recorded on the 4 mile walk - total of 17 Goosander, 4 Grey Heron, 3 Dipper, female Goldeneye, plus 5 Little Grebes which had congregated below the weir at Hirst Wood. No Kingfisher seen.
