After some early morning mist a bright sunny morning with a start temperature of 12°C as I walked round Leeming Reservoir. House Martins, Sand Martins and Swallows were seen flying around the reservoir and a Swallow was seen collecting mud which they use for building their nest.There were c30 LBB Gulls on the water and a Cormorant was on the valve tower, a Grey Wagtail was distant on the banking below the dam wall with a Pied Wagtail in the overflow area. It was good to see a Common Sandpiper, others seen were Canadas and Tufteds.
