Tuesday September 7th a.m.
A sunny morning with a start temperature of 14°C as I Set off walking heading for Doe Park Reservoir. As I passed Hewenden Res there was no sign of yesterdays Osprey, as I walked along the road of Doe Park Reservoir Dam a look over the wall produced four Grey Wagtails. A Wheatear then landed on the wall then moving closer to the water there was also a Cormorant and Grey Heron. I walked to the other end of the Reservoir and headed towards Denholme Clough seeing a Spotted Flycatcher.
The walk back was hard work as the temperature rose quickly, a couple of birders were on the lookout for the Osprey I used all my luck up yesterday for this bird which I saw no sign of today. As I headed back passed Hewenden Reservoir the morning was rounded off with a Kestrel hunting with the sun on it for once making for some decent pictures.
