I can't believe this is the first time I have been up to the reservoir having been birding Calderdale since 1970 !!
Looks a great site surrounded by extensive moorland in all directions. It was good to see a local reservoir showing a lot of shoreline. Probably the reason for the Spotted Redshank dropping in and staying over the weekend. It had gone this morning and no sign of yesterday's Black Redstart or Common Redstart unfortunately.
1 juv Curlew on the shoreline - no other waders.
1 Pied Wagtail, 4 Kestrel, 3 Mallard, 6 Goldfinch.
40+ Swallows and 12 Meadow Pipits >SW
15 L B B Gulls >E
1 Common Buzzard over the M62
I'll be going again.
