A cloudy morning with a temperature of 14°C and on the whole a quiet birding couple of visits but enough about to keep the interest going.Firstly at Leeshaw the Little Owl was in its usual position along with c50 Lapwings in a nearby field and Four Oystercatchers were flying around with a Grey Heron keeping watch.
At Leeming the water level is particularly low but I did see a Grey Wagtail at the start of the stream below the reservoir.A Kestrel was perched in a tree waiting to pounce and at the side of the path amongst the Brambles was a Juvenile Robin and several Willow Warblers.A couple of the willow Warblers were singing then there was the din of a Grey Heron as it flew in to the waters edge near a couple of BH Gull juveniles.
Over head it was good to see a Swift hanging on among several House Martins which were making trips to the edge of the water, maybe doing repairs to their nests with the mud.
