Fly Flatts and Mixenden Res'r

Totally fogged off at Fly this afternoon and the same at Withens Head so called at mixenden on the way back home and that was worthwhile as there were at least some birds there!!
A massive tit flock in the trees and shrubs along the edge of the Res'r. They were mostly Blue and Coal Tits with several Goldcrests, L T Tits and Great Tits, at least 2  Treecreepers and 2+ Ciff-Chaff's and a few Chaffinch with them. Possibly 50+ birds altogether but not half tricky to i d in the poor light, drizzle and so many small birds in the canopy which is still full of leaves. Several warbler types were flitting about rapidly but I couldn't find anything out of the ordinary. Well worth a check if anyone is up there this weekend.
2 G C Grebes - adult and juv
Passing B H Gulls and Common Gulls
1 Grey Wagtail
c12 Pied Wagtails along Hayes Lane
