Leeshaw/ Fly Flatts

                                                  Leeshaw Redshanks

                                 Over 14 Oystercatchers at Leeshaw

                                         Curlew in the morning dew
                 Fly Flatts Red Legged Partridge
                                       Meadow Pipit
        Few Wheatears but all distant views
                                         Redwings

                                   Lapwings pairing up

An icy cold WNW>5 and early showers kept things down a bit but Leeshaw was buzzing with common stuff both on and around the water.
Wheatears were showing at Fly Flatts and Withins Gap whilst BV reported 9 on Trough Lane.
A brief  sighting of a pair of Stonechat was a bonus thanks to Brian Vickers who,d had them a few days previous but they kept down in the moor due to the cold wind.
