Cromwell Bottom

Another visit out to a local spot near Brighouse, Cromwell Bottom, hoping to pick up on some warbler action for the night.

3 Buzzards were nice to see as I pulled into the car park, then there was a little else on my way down to the feeding station, Wren, Robin and Blackbirds mainly.

The feeding station produced plenty with Chaffinch, Robins, Dunnock, Great Tit, Blue Tit with a few Blackbird, Stock Dove, Woodpigeon, and the odd Bullfinch and Reed Bunting.

Out on the river were a couple of male Goosander with a single female and a single Moorhen along with single Grey Wagtail. Plenty of Wrens on the reserve but trying to get of photo of one of these was difficult and a task I failed at. Eventually I did pick up on a new warbler species for the year, a single Willow Warbler was new with a Chiffchaff nearby to get a comparison. A single Treecreeper was a nice one to see by the riverside trees

A Little Grebe and a Grey Heron were near the viewpoint but alas no Swallow or Martin’s about as yet.

  1. I’ve never managed to get a clear shot of a reed bunting like this!
