Leeshaw & Ogden Scoters

From Sunday 13th July p.m.
 A bit late with this post as a football match caught my attention along with a few other gardening
jobs.After seeing the reports from BS yesterday we zoomed off to Leeshaw where we found the
male adult Common Scoter a first for us at this site.We saw BV who pointed out some Golden
Plovers as they flew across the res & some Snipe on the far shore line.Other birds included Canadas,
Greylags & building numbers of Lapwings. Oystercatchers were also present some flying across the reservoir giving chance of a quick snap.We then decided to go to Ogden to see if the other bird was
still present.We were in luck & found the male Common Scoter in the middle of the reservoir keeping
its head down, a couple of record shots as it briefly looked up then off to watch the football with
another site tick notched up.

  1. Glad you got them lads. Not easy to snap out in the middle of the water.
