Blackleach Country Park

Whilst out following my other pursuit of geocaching I visited Blackleach Country Park, a little oasis of nature about half a mile from Walkden.  It was a beautiful autumn morning, cold and frosty but bright and sunny.

I'd never been here before and I was quite impressed and whilst out I saw the following birds:
  • Cormorant (over)
  • Mute Swan
  • Mallard
  • Coot
  • Moorhen
  • Canada Goose
  • Robin
  • Magpie
  • Carrion Crow
  • Various Gulls
Nothing really special here today then, but still a very nice place to visit and who knows, there may be some interesting visitors at other times in the year.
