Leeshaw Reservoir

                                            Little Ringed Plover
                                        Redshank
                                    Several Snipe present




0700 hrs and dense fog at Fly Flatts so on to Leeshaw which was just below the cloud base.
A pleasing fresh morning with a strong W>5 and light drizzle drying up mid watch but enough to get the birds active.
                         Plenty waders present , the dominant bird being Snipe with 6 different birds up drumming and dropping into fields around the reservoir.
What seemed like a good morning for Terns never materialized but a steady move of gulls through >W. A Buzzard appeared over the moor briefly to be quickly remove by mobbing Lapwings whilst a single Little Ringed Plover was a nice find in one of the fields.
