Leeshaw in the fog


                                   Flypast of Golden Plover in the fog


                                  Plenty Oystercatchers present

                                             1 Pair Little Owl

                                             Goldies in the fields

A disastrous morning with thick fog at all the upland venues and even Leeshaw was in heavy cloud though birds were good.
First bird over as I got out of the car was a single Shelduck >W just visible in the mist. This was shortly followed by 16 Golden Plover which did a circuit before heading off >NW.
Golden Plovers are now getting back in the fields with several up above the reservoir but distant and in the fog.
