Yesterday saw the classes resume after the half-term break. We travelled the long and arduous route to West Yorkshire. We waited a long time for the appearance of a pair of Smew, but our tenacity was rewarded albeit with distant views. Nearer the visitor centre were some gorgeous Bullfinches and a Green Woodpecker, but no Kingfishers. The wooded areas were denuded of birds, because they were all making use of the feeding area. There was still a lot of evidence of December flood damage!
