This afternoon viewing from along the top road while BS watched from his usual watch-point. Hoping not to miss much between us !
A good mix of Lapwings and Golden Plovers, (BS got a decent count of 105) with the Curlew back in evidence after seeming to move away from the high ground during the really atrocious weather up there last week
2 Lesser Black-backed Gulls looked to be on patrol ready for any early Canada Geese nest raids.
A few Canada geese and Mallard on the edge of the reservoir mostly under the banking so didn't get an accurate count
A few Red Grouse in evidence
1 Short-eared Owl and distant Buzzard
