Saturday 21st February a.m.
A sunny but cold start to the day after an overnight frost the temperature was 0°C on our arrival at Leeshaw reservoir near Oxenhope.We saw a flock of Canadas in the top field then it was good to see four Curlew fly past us into a nearby field where we were able to get a couple of snaps.Lapwings & BH Gulls were in good numbers at the edge of the reservoir,also a couple of Greylags & Muscovy Ducks.It was also good to see a pair of Oystercatchers in a distant field with another two fly down to the edge of the water.The usual Pheasants were in the surrounding fields & we also saw three Pied Wagtails, one of them posing for a snap.

Nice to see returning Curlew
