Saturday May 25th a.m.
 We also visited Leeming Reservoir this morning in the sunshine, as we took a couple of snaps
from above the reservoir we noticed a deer in a field with some horses,not sure if it was a wild
one or not but well worth a snap.There were plenty of birds around at the reservoir with a pair
of Oystercatchers,Common Sandpiper & Redshank. Around the overflow area there were four
Grey Wagtails two of them being youngsters which was good to see.Willow Warblers were in full
voice enjoying the sunshine, there was a male Goosander on the water with Mallards around the
shore one pair with six chicks.We saw 11 Rooks feeding in a nearby field & there were fly overs
of Canadas,Curlew,Swift & Lapwing with Swallows feeding over the water & one posed briefly
on a fence post as we walked round.A Pheasant was also seen along with other more common
Willow Warbler
