    Baildon Moor. A few minutes in Jan.

    On a chilly Sunday, I explored Baildon Moor, photographing wildlife along a path flanked by walls. Though I heard unseen pheasants, I managed to capture images of a possible female Reed Bunting and a Barn Owl in the evening light. Unfortunately, the website’s gallery feature is malfunctioning.
