Cullingworth & Hewenden Reservoir

Sunday 30th October a.m.
 Yet another cloudy morning with a temperature of 10°C as we made our way through the village to Hewenden Viaduct.In the trees at the side of the viaduct were a mixed flock of birds containing Blue, Great and LT Tits plus Goldfinch these added to the Robins and Collared Doves we had seen on our walk here.An initial look at the Reservoir had BH Gulls on the Dam wall,a couple of Canadas, Mallards and a Grey Heron on and by the water, above we were treated to a flypast of c100 Woodpigeons.At the other side of the viaduct we saw a couple of distant Mistle Thrush, from here it was quiet through the wood and the top end of the Reservoir but coming back the other side it livened up a bit.We saw a mixed flock of Fieldfare and Redwings with c20 of each on the water were four Teals and four Tufteds all at distance,a Cormorant was seen overhead.The Fieldfare and Redwings were scattered when a Kestrel came and landed in the tree where they had made their quick exit from.Our final birds of the morning came at the farm where there were a couple of Pied Wagtails and a Grey Wagtail.
