Leeshaw Reservoir

                          Oystercatchers up to 16
         Breeding over for most of the Lapwings
                                           A busy shoreline
                                  Curlews more relaxed now
                        with most chicks grown.


                  Still some late Lapwing chicks

1500 hrs at Leeshaw with a mix of cloud and sunshine with a W>5 blowing.
                                                        A busy shoreline today with post breeding Lapwings now beginning to regroup on the shoreline or in the fields with several grown young amongst them.
The Oystercatcher count is up to 16 now and usually get up into the high 20s.
                                                                Curlew and Snipe are now settling down to feed in the fields without having to worry about their young whilst the breeding Redshanks seem to have moved on.
Across on the north shoreline gulls were gathering with 32 LBB, 12 BHG and 2 Herring with no sign of returning Commons as yet but a steady move of Black Headeds was apparent  all >W.
                                                            Swallows, Swifts and House Martins fed over the water whilst the usual resident species carried out their daily routine.
