Around the locals

After a good run over the weekend this morning came to a grinding halt with very little of interest at 3 venues.
Lower Laithe held a few mixed Common and Black Headed gulls but nothing on the water.
Leeshaw was terrible with 1 Cormorant , 2 Lapwing, 1 Heron and 38 Cananda with a few House Martins and Swallows through >SW.
Fly Flatts had nothing on the water and the only bird of note was a very distant Buzzard quartering the moor and spending several minutes at a time hovering in the wind.
                                             Good to bump into NK by the Delvers walking up to the Withins. By the time I,d told him how quiet it was he,d have probably ended up in the Delvers.
A call from CK this morning reported the Wigeon still at Oxenhope along with a juv Gt Crested Grebe, 7 Snipe and 3 Teal.
