Rodley Nature Reserve
Had a short trip to Rodley nature reserve yesterday. Everything except the River Aire frozen over. Not a lot about – sparrows, dunnocks, great and blue tits, chaffinches at Managers Garden. Some golden eye, tufted and mandarin ducks on the Aire.
The canal frozen except for a small area by the Barge pub. Swans and mallards all gathered there.
I would recommend The Barge pub for a drink. They have several largers and a range of real ale. Normally at least three guest ales as well as Tetleys cask and mild. I love Tetleys mild and not many places sell it.
