Leeshaw Reservoir

            Greylags outnumbering Canadas this year so far.
                Oystercatcher and Grey Wagtail
                                   Distant Redshank
                    Good numbers of Pied Wagtails


                     Oystercatchers paired up
                   Grey Wag, wish it was a Yellow
            Plenty Lapwing chicks but hard to find.

  A favourite of mine, flying geese.

Leeshaw Reservoir   0700 - 0930 hrs.  Sunny and clear .Cool W>4

A lively morning at Leeshaw with nothing out of the ordinary but plenty to watch through out.
Small amounts of shoreline starting to show just enough to attract Common Sandpipers, Redshank, Snipe and Oystercatchers though the north banking is still out of photographic range even at 600 mm.
Plenty breeding activity with Greylags and Canadas with several young and Lapwing chicks in the fields closely watched by LBB gulls.
Plenty House Martins and Swallows over the water but I,ve yet to see a Sand Martin this year.

7 Oystercatchers
2 Redshank
3 Common Sandpiper
1 Snipe
1 Reed Bunting
1 Heron
8 Pied Wagtail
1 Grey Wagtail
1 Peregrine
Plenty House Martin and Swallow
+ usual Canadas, Greylags, Lapwings, Curlew , Mipits etc.
