No wildlife sightings including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned on this blog throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals. BS.

A second dinner time dip

                                Ingleborough in the distance
                                  Looking >W across the col
                                 Clear blue skies
                                                Roe deer enjoying the sun

Following a call from NK to say that the Teal had moved on, a text from DJS reported 2 Whoopers at Mixenden
so , thinking that was a fair substitute it was another rushed down dinner and dog walk then the car out and up to Causeway Foot Col where I knew Id be able to scope the reservoir.
On arrival it was clear that the swans had gone or possibly tucked under the near banking out of sight. I later got a text from DJS saying they had left before 1100hrs so I well and truly dipped yet again.
I had 10 minutes to enjoy the calm clear conditions though very little was about.  Several LBB gulls were over TMR reservoir and 2 Herring gulls looked like landing but then continued on >W whilst a few winter thrushes were in the fields down near Syke Lane. A single Roe Deer lazed in the sunshine and was undisturbed by my presence being such a distance away.
Just getting used to enjoying the view then,bang, back to the garage.

You`re not having much luck with the dinnertime dashes, Brian. Fingers crossed that that`ll change soon.
