Adel Dam

Went for a walk around Adel Dam nature reserve recently.  A small reserve maintained by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.

Haven’t been for a while even though it’s just down the road.  It was fairly quiet to be honest and there’s probably more bird life at the park next to it.  Saw Jays and Mandarin Ducks along with Greater Spotted Woodpecker.  Got some great photos recently.
