Cromwell Bottom

Hadn’t been out with the camera for a couple of weeks, it was a nice day, so decided on hitting Cromell Bottom near Brighouse for a couple of hours.

On arrival I got reports of the Kingfisher from a couple standing on the first bridge, also 2 photographers one either side of the river waiting for the birds to appear. Apparently, they had been frequenting this area here over the last couple of weeks, I hung around for a while, the photographers were now moving away, so I took my leave also and headed for the feeding station.

I stayed here for a couple of hours taking photos of Robins, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Coal Tit, Chaffinch, the Great Spotted Woodpecker was heard but alas never showed, one day. I did however manage to get a few decent photos of a Treecreeper, which was a first for me.

I felt my luck was in, so headed back to the Kingfisher bridge. Ten minutes and nothing, a couple of other photographers arrived and asked what I was looking at, not looking, searching and waiting for a Kingfisher. wasn’t soon before they started to leave, and there it was, one Kingfisher in the lower branches turned out to be a female bird, got the other group onto it just before they left the bridge, happy faces all round.
