Tour of the reservoirs and a bonus for Leeshaw

     Bonus morning, 9 Whooper Swans >E over Leeshaw
                  Nearly missed these as still part dark

                                  Fields full of pheasant.

At last a clear but damp morning very slow to come light.
Had to wait at Lower Laithe for some light to appear before I could check the water.
First light and very dull at Leeshaw when 9 Whoopers came over very high and direct West to East.
Several Cormorants were moving, some calling in at Leeshaw.
