Mixenden Reservoir

A very good hour there this morning with plenty to hold the interest. I left a bit reluctantly wondering 
what might turn up next given the weather conditions. !
1 Swift was a nice surprise for half hour feeding over the Res'r though it left high >W as a snow-storm arrived.
20+ Swallows
1 House Martin
2 Sand Martins 
1 Herring Gull
3 Moorhen
3 Great Crested Grebes
4 Canada Geese
6 Chaffinch, 3 Linnet, Blackcap, Willow Warbler, 1 Chiffchaff. 

Also in the snow-storm -5 Black- headed Gulls >N and 2 Common Sandpipers dropped in but I don't think
they stayed long. 

See BS's blog - West Yorkshire Birding - for an update from his afternoon visit to Mixenden.

Enough there to keep your mind off the cold weather Dave!
Great to get an April swift in "winter"!
