Lee Mount etc........

Last night I heard noisy flock of Whooper Swans heading over - maybe >W. It was 22:40 and no chance of seeing them in the dark. Always great to hear though. Maybe more within the next month or so as they head back to Iceland for their breeding season.

Checked Mixenden Reservoir and Fly Flatts this morning in case they had dropped in overnight but no show. Plenty Black-headed and Common Gulls at Mixenden with 5 Herring Gulls (4 adults) and an adult L B B Gull. Just a Cormorant to add to that, it flew off >S

3 Lapwings at Withens Head, opposite the wind farm, and c50 Starlings braving it out in the cold, wet and blustery south westerly. 

Yesterday we found 5 Goldeneye (3 drakes) at Withens Clough reservoir. 1 adult Herring Gull on the water and c20 Reed Buntings in and around the res'r cottage.
