Leeshaw Reservoir

                A good season for Greylags

             Some waders moving through, Oystercatcher


An evening visit to Leeshaw provided very little other than signs of some waders moving through with 3 Oystercatchers and 5 Curlew in surrounding fields. The water was poor but, as with Oxenhope, several Mallards were on the water all in eclipse and probably flightless.
Otherwise it was down to Greylag geese with 79 present in a nearby field before dropping onto the water.
No shoreline at all at this location so looking poor for the wader movement.
