Leeming Reservoir

Saturday 14th April a.m.
The cloudy cover was still present when I arrived at Leeming Reservoir although the temperature had gone up a notch to 8°C.The first bird I saw was a Grey Wagtail which went down the overflow so no chance of a picture there.On the water were eleven Canadas and Mallards but as I waded through the mud I soon heard the singing of Willow Warblers I saw at least three.A Cormorant was laid down on the tower then overhead a Sparrowhawk appeared in the distance with a Kestrel nearby.Several other common species were seen including Chaffinch,Goldfinch and Greenfinch.
