Today !

Started with a call first thing from HC/BS that 2 Whooper Swans had been seen over Oxenhope heading in our direction. A check later failed to find them on the local reservoirs so they may have headed straight over . (?)

From AC - c150 Pink-footed Geese headed east over Northowram at around 12:30 (high and fast)!

Fly Flatts - 36 Mallard on the reservoir were spooked by something unseen, maybe a fox, they flew off in the direction of Dean Head/Castle Carr. Also with them a small wader was probably a Dunlin.
On the way up there, 2 Raven were feeding on rabbit road casualty.

Also from JM a nice photo of part of a group of Red-legged Partridge's at Ringstone a couple of days ago.
