Sunday 3 August 2014

Embsay - 6 Tree Sparrow.

Fly Flatts Reservoir - an amazing 31 Wheatear around the shoreline with more birds on the moor.

The work at Keighley Reservoir is now almost complete and the footpath diversion that had been in place from Slippery Ford for most of the summer has now been lifted. The work has resulted in water levels that are incredibly low leaving a dry, arid landscape with several pools and islands that should look tempting to passage waders. 
This morning a Greenshank and 2 Common Sandpipers were present. 
Ian Hargreaves
Stockbridge Reserve (members only) - 33 species recorded including Bullfinch, Chiff-Chaff, Reed Warbler, Kestrel, Blackcap, Goldcrest, Jay & GSW.
Alan Cooper (with SR who stupidly forgot his bins!)

Glovershaw
Four Wheatears, six Swifts and a Whitethroat at its nest site.
