A second dinner time dip

                                Ingleborough in the distance
                                  Looking >W across the col
                                 Clear blue skies
                                                Roe deer enjoying the sun

Following a call from NK to say that the Teal had moved on, a text from DJS reported 2 Whoopers at Mixenden
so , thinking that was a fair substitute it was another rushed down dinner and dog walk then the car out and up to Causeway Foot Col where I knew Id be able to scope the reservoir.
On arrival it was clear that the swans had gone or possibly tucked under the near banking out of sight. I later got a text from DJS saying they had left before 1100hrs so I well and truly dipped yet again.
I had 10 minutes to enjoy the calm clear conditions though very little was about.  Several LBB gulls were over TMR reservoir and 2 Herring gulls looked like landing but then continued on >W whilst a few winter thrushes were in the fields down near Syke Lane. A single Roe Deer lazed in the sunshine and was undisturbed by my presence being such a distance away.
Just getting used to enjoying the view then,bang, back to the garage.

You`re not having much luck with the dinnertime dashes, Brian. Fingers crossed that that`ll change soon.
