Leeshaw Reservoir.

A night of torrential rain left a grey start to the morning with a cool SW>5 which deteriorated as the watch went on finally aborting at 0900 hrs when the clouds dropped down bringing mist and heavy drizzle off the moor through the valley. Surprisingly it was much brighter as I arrived home with even a hint of sunshine.
Movement was good at the start with Starlings and Lapwings being the dominant birds whilst the water remained quiet.
