More Pinkies, Leeshaw reservoir

                           Pink Footed Geese moving West to East


                                           Fieldfares moving through

The extra hour of daylight was somewhat wasted this morning when I arrived at Leeshaw at 0700hrs to find heavy drizzle and a strong SW>5 with dark clouds overhead.
The reservoir was quiet other than a few gulls and Cormorants but as soon as the skies started to clear things livened up.
An early skein of geese came over >SE, very high up in the mist and this was followed about 1 hour later with 2 more smaller skeins >NE.
Starlings were moving well >NW and a couple of flocks of Fieldfare came over low and >SW so what looked as if it was going to be a washout turned out to be a decent watch which is usually the case.
