A bright sunny morning with a temperature of 8°C when I pulled up at Leeshaw where it was good to see Greylags, with one pair having eight young Goslings. Redshanks were on the dam banking at the edge of the water and a couple of Swallows were flying around.Lapwings were in the surrounding fields and Curlews were seen as they moved around as were Oystercatchers.It was also good to get a pair of Common Sandpipers with one bird singing and displaying.Also under the dam wall it was great to see two LRPs further down the track there was a small flock of ten Linnets.
