Gillian & Stuart led this week's trip when 14 members enjoyed a lovely day out when we walked from Ledsham over the fields to RSPB Fairburn Ings, passing a wood with more violets (sweet and early dog) than Joan has ever seen in her life (that really is saying something!) and then we returned by a different field route which passed through a wood with a remakable display of wood anemones and where the first bluebells of Spring were just showing flower. A record total of 52 bird species was seen or heard and 36 plant species were recorded as well as comma and orange tip butterfly. Most of us enjoyed a refreshing drink at the Chequers Inn (who had very kindly allowed us to park our (new) minibus in their carpark) before returning to Bradford. Watch out for some lovely photos of willow tits taken by Sue who will try to post them on this blog.
