Our Sunday morning walk this week was at RSPB Fairburn Ings. There were lots of garden birds to be seen, they were taking advantage of the fact that the feeders outside the visitor centre had just been filled up.
We had Archie with us so we wanted a decent walk, we decided to take the Riverbank Trail, a path which runs beside the River Aire.
A very big bird must have made this nest. There were a few of them clustered together in the tree tops, all packed with leaves.
We took a break at the Village Bay Viewpoint to look out on the lake.
It's the Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend, so don't forget to register. You'll get a free guide and a £5 RSPB shop discount. All you have to do is spend an hour counting birds in your garden, how simple can it be?
I'm stocked up and ready to go.
I always offer a variety of food in the garden, mixed seed, sunflower hearts, niger seed and suet blocks, as well as tasty treats from time to time. Offering an assortment of food encourages different species to visit. It's just as important to have water on offer too.
I hope I get plenty of visitors this weekend.
