Fairburn Ings RSPB

thought we would have a change this weekend and take a trip out to Fairburn Ings for a little change of scenery, on the way out we caught sight of 12 Waxwing in the Huddersfield area, nice start to the day.

On arrival at Fairburn we made a start around the visitor centre feeders to pick up quickly a few common species House Sparrow, Tree Sparrow, Long tailed Tit, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Nuthatch (2) nice surprise along with a female Brambling. Photo opportunity at the hide watching Coal Tit, Greenfinch, Chaffinch, Tree Sparrow, Canada Goose, Pheasant, Cormorant. A walk around the boardwalk gave very little else except a nice Robin


On then to the feeding area for some practice in flight shots of the Black headed Gulls
