The morning started with some sunshine but it soon clouded over with a temperature of 5°C.As we approached Leeshaw we checked out the field at Upper Marsh seeing four Golden Plover which were our first of the year.In the surrounding fields at Leeshaw there were Curlew,Oystercatcher,Lapwings, BH Gulls and we spotted two Little Owls again our first ones for the year.On the water were Canadas & Greylags with more BH Gulls with the bonus of a few Commons mixed in.There was a Pied Wagtail in a field & later as we were taking a snap of an Oystercatcher on the dam wall another Pied Wagtail appeared.
