First just a quick mention of our bit of luck of being in the right place at the right time. On Sat. afternoon on a short walk along the Leeds & Liverpool Canal at East Marton near Skipton a flock of about 30 Waxwings landed in an Ash tree just as we were walking passed on the canal towpath. I managed to get a distant photo of them before they flew off to a nearby Hawthorn bush and started to strip the berries. Also on the walk we saw the Kingfisher, 2 Goldcrests and several Long- tailed Tits.
Yesterday on our weekly Sunday walk with our friends we had another stab at seeing some Salmon.
.The best place to see them is at Stainforth Foss on the River Ribble in Upper Ribblesdale. I never tire of watch them leaping up the falls and I've been visiting this spot for over 50 years. Yesterday was particular pleasant on a quite Autumn day with many of the Autumn colours at their best.
