Shipley Glen
A pleasant walk on a rare sunny morning produced only a limited number of birds, these included eight Jays, six of which were prominent in the Glen and another two made what has become a daily visit to an adjoining garden. Nuthatches were very active in three different places, a Grey Wagtail was feeding on the beck but the big surprise was the total absence of Herons. At this time of year, with the river swollen after heavy rains, there are likely to be roosting birds in two or three locations.
