Cullingworth and Hewenden Reservoir

Sunday 27th August a.m.
 Another bright and sunny start to the morning with a temperature of 11°C as I had an enjoyable walk through the village and round Hewenden Reservoir.The highlight of the walk was as I came round a corner in front of me was a sparrowhawk perched on a gate post.There was little on the water just Mallards with BH Gull numbers building on the dam wall and in a distant field Canadas which were joined by more which flew past me.A Grey Wagtail flew on to the dam wall and it was good to see a female Pheasant with a juvenile.Some Swallows posed nicely and there are still plenty of House Martins flying around overhead, a Grey Heron and a Cormorant were on opposite sides of the Reservoir.There were a flock of 23 Lapwings at the side of the Reservoir which was unusual but I was pleased to see them.A Chiffchaff was heard briefly and a Jay flew out of a tree and other usual species were also seen.
