Adel Dam Nature Reserve

Popping out to Adel Dam Nature Reserve adjoining Goldenacre Park we enjoyed good views of a Great Spotted Woodpecker at the Marsh Hide feeding station & despite low light we managed some shots.

In the immediate area Grey Squirrels attempted to carry away whole slices of bread before settling on a more leisurely approach and snacking on the spot. Moor Hen, Blackbird, Great Tit, Nuthatch, Coal Tit, Blue Tit all visited the feeding station. At the rear of the feeding station the stream runs from right to left into Adel Dam & through gaps in the vegetation we noticed a couple of Teal travelling upstream.

We didn't stop for long at the second hide which overlooks the dam but long enough to spot a Fox and a Roe Deer on the opposite bank.


  1. The last time I saw a Woodpecker in Leeds was at Golden Acre. How is it for mud around there at the moment, are the paths easy to walk?

  2. Its muddy muddy muddy. But a pair of wellies should do the job, wrap up warm too Pam. L


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment.
