Barkisland - I had a quick look at Bowers Mill pond early on. Lots of potential for some good birds in and around the streamside and woodland there as well.
8+ Teal displaying
1 Dipper
1 Moorhen
10 Mallard
1 Grey Wagtail

Ringstone Res'r
Didn't have long there and good to have had a chat with DF 'on the early shift'!
1 Goosander flew in
c15 Stock Doves headed over towards the north fields
Quite a few Fieldfares and Starlings up there but didn't have time to do a count, similarly a lot of B H Gulls in the surrounding fields and a few Common Gulls

Also a report of
c50 Pink-footed Geese heading over towards Halifax Town Centre at around 10:10 (AC)
Another group of c100 over Cromwell Bottom >NW at 12.35 ish (BH) - perhaps the same group as DJP had over Stoodley Pike - see below Erringden Moor report.
Also a single 'pinkie' with Canadas at Scammonden Res'r this morning (JB)
