On our way home from Leeshaw we called in at Leeming Reservoir where the sun was getting
hot now.There were the usual Jackdaws,Rooks & Crows in the surrounding fields but no
Wagtails in the overflow area. Mipits were around & a Linnet seemed to be staying close to them,
a couple of Grey Herons were looking for fish & a pair of Oystercatchers were making their usual din.
Swallows,House Martins & a couple of Swifts were flying over the water some of them having a
drink from the water.There were 18 Greylags on the water which was unusual for this site, but the
Mallards were here as expected.In the sunshine there were plenty Butterflies around a Large Skipper
& a Meadow Brown resting long enough for a snap.
