A skein of 75 Pink-footed Geese flew west down the Aire Valley at 9am.  The flock of Geese at the bottom of the Glen amounted to 190 Canadas, 60 Greylag and a solitary Pink-footed.  A resident was pointing out the damaged to the riverside area in Robert's Park caused by this flock when they make their regular visits.  Urgent action is required to rid the park of this menace.  At Hirstwood weir a Dipper was feeding and in Shipley Glen eight Grey Heron were present.
