Leeshaw Reservoir

                                                   Greylags moving over


                                      100+ Fieldfare
                                 Fieldfare moving around the fields

                                                     Single distant Curlew
                Pick n mix, Fieldfares, Starlings, Corvids

A icy cold morning with a strong WNW>6 with some sunshine.
Nothing on the water other than Mallards with 1 Cormorant and 4 Teal on the distant shoreline, the water now being up above the near shoreline.
A nice little skein of Greylags came over but possibly last weeks locals though no geese in the fields at all.
A mass of Fieldfare were moving around the far fields shimmering in the sun and a single Curlew was in flight calling.

100+ Fieldfare
27 Greylag
1 Curlew
4 Teal
21 Mallard
1 Cormorant
+ usual small gulls etc
