Sunday morn at Leeshaw

                                 1 of 3 Common Sandpipers

                       Little Owl always present
            1 pair Tufted new in from yesterday

                         Lapwing chicks growing well

0700 hrs at Leeshaw in black clouds and light rain brightening as the watch went on.
                                                     Ignoring the call of the Cuckoo this morning I spent the time checking and  watching over the water with still no passing Terns though gull numbers are increasing with even a Common gull present. A female Tufted way out on the water had me thinking Scoter until I scoped it to find female Tufted and then a male appeared from under the banking.
Good gull numbers building and my first post Spring Common gull arriving but moving on >W.
