Fewston & Swinsty

Today we wandered around Fewston and neighbouring Swinsty reservoirs, about 6 miles from Otley. Fewston was still iced over so a few ducks and geese were on the banks hanging around for snacks, including these two.

Canada Goose, there were about 20 on nighbouring Swinsty reservoir
On the way we spotted.....Treecreeper

This huge bracket fungi growing on an Oak, it must have been over 30 cm in diameter

Bramble leaves stood out in the winter sunshine.
