Leeshaw Reservoir

Saturday 1st August a.m.
 A dull start to the day with fog on the high moorland but soon clearing at Leeshaw with some sunny spells & a temperature of 10.5°C.The water level remains low, there were no birds on the water but good numbers of House Martins & Swallows were flying over it.Some of the Swallows rested at the edge of the water with several Lapwings.A couple of Grey Herons were keeping a watchful eye on the water, Canadas & Greylags were in the surrounding fields. A mixed flock of birds contained Linnets & Goldfinch which were feeding on the Thistle seeds, also several Mipits were about.
