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.

Leeshaw Reservoir

                                                   Greylags moving over


                                      100+ Fieldfare
                                 Fieldfare moving around the fields

                                                     Single distant Curlew
                Pick n mix, Fieldfares, Starlings, Corvids

A icy cold morning with a strong WNW>6 with some sunshine.
Nothing on the water other than Mallards with 1 Cormorant and 4 Teal on the distant shoreline, the water now being up above the near shoreline.
A nice little skein of Greylags came over but possibly last weeks locals though no geese in the fields at all.
A mass of Fieldfare were moving around the far fields shimmering in the sun and a single Curlew was in flight calling.

100+ Fieldfare
27 Greylag
1 Curlew
4 Teal
21 Mallard
1 Cormorant
+ usual small gulls etc
