Reservoirs 7.9.11

Post by Neil Southworth » Wed Sep 07, 2011 12:20 pm

Did a quick tour of the reservoirs in the hope that something may have been blown in by the wind. They were quieter than usual!

Lower / Upper Rivi:- Buzzard at Millstone end plus ca 50 hirundines, Cormorant 6, Mallard ca 20, Kingfisher calling somewhere along the edge.

Yarrow:- 21 Lesser Black-backed Gulls - 1 adult, 1 third winter, 1 second winter and 18 juvenile / first winter birds (yes, I'm getting desperate!)

Anglezarke:- Cormorant 6, GBB Gull, 2 juvenile LBB's, ca 20 Mallard, 20+ Swallow

Long Lane, Heath Charnock:- mixed flock of 100+ BH Gulls and corvids flying around
