BREEDING SEASON EXCLUSIONS.

As of now through the duration of the breeding season all schedule one birds , red status birds and birds of a sensitive nature to this area will be omitted from the blog or reported as undisclosed site due to the widespread persecution of nesting birds by unscrupulous parties including game keepers and egg collectors.
Any of the above species that are obviously on passage through the area will be reported as normal.
This also applies to wildlife such as Roe Deer, Badger and Hares which are badly under threat from poaching and long dogging in the area at present and unfortunately this exclusion of wildlife will have to continue throughout the year.
Just another sign of the times.

Leeshaw Reservoir

Another of those grey dull mornings with Leeshaw just below the cloud base which was putting Fly Flatts in the fog but at least the wind had dropped to a cold W>5.  No photos this morning as everything in silhouette.
Disappointing on the water  first light but things livened up slightly by 0915 hrs with a steady flow of Cormorants and Herring gulls >W whilst Fieldfares, Starlings and a small flock of Meadow Pipits were present. A few Greylags came in on the water but these were the only geese present. Good to bump into Cullingworth birder NP who had stopped off on his way to Redcar Tarn.

7 Greylag
9 Meadow Pipit
c50 Fieldfare
