18/02/18 - Anglers Country Park

My days off and the weather was shocking with total cloud cover for four days and four nights. So I was unable to get any decent landscape shots (and the critics may well say nothing new there then) I decided to visit a nearby nature reserve and have a go at Birding. 

I wanted somewhere that I hadn't been before and picked Anglers Country Park near to Barnsley, I was chuffed to find that parking was free and made my way to the main hide next to the lake ignoring the couple having a full blown domestic in the car park.

Over a 2 hour period I spotted Cormorant, Coot, Canada Goose, Lapwing, Oystercatcher, Black Headed Gull, Moorhen, Greylag Goose, Carrion Crow, Wigeon, Shoveler, Tufted Duck, Gadwall, Golden Eye, Lesser Black Backed Gull, Pochard and Mallard. In all 17 species and quite happy with the result even though the photos aren't too cracking.
