Leeshaw Reservoir . Easter Monday

                Fieldfares Galore



                           Soon be on their way home.


                                        Oystercatchers very vocal.

An horrendous start to the morning with sleet and some laying snow over Fly Flatts with fog hanging over the water with the wind decreased but turned back to N>5.
Down to Leeshaw reservoir with sleet and rain clearing by 0800 hrs and even a glimpse of the sun trying to break through.
Despite the conditions the area was alive with birds though nothing unusual and nothing on the water.
The highlight of the morning was a flock of around 70 Fieldfare moving around the fields and trees looking ready for heading homeward bound.
