Adel Dam

On a recent trip to Adel Dam next to Goldenacre Park, a Great Spotted Woodpecker graced us with its presence. Not too much else apart from the usual suspects, a pair of Nuthatch, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Moor Hen, Blackbird.


We made our way over to the Dam hide moments before the heavens opened and we settled ourselves in the hide for 20 minutes or so to see out the storm. Even the handful of Teal and Mallards left the water to seek shelter on the margins. The wait was worth it though as the rain receded, and the surrounding vegetation glowed against the grey moisture heavy sky.

  4. Hello Debbie, why not treat yourself! We had a walk round Goldenacre Park too, some of the Rhododendrons are in bloom and they look lovely. Weatherwise this weekend is supposed to be good. Combine it with a trip to Weardley and maybe Rodley where you can pop into the visitors centre for a cuppa te and a slice of cake. What more do you need?
    Best wishes, Linda
