Keighley Moor Reservoir
Two Bewick Swans on the reservoir.  They remained until 9.05am but were disturbed by a dog walker.  The birds flew off to the west.  These are the first since 2011.

A female Black Grouse, which has been in the area for a little while, can usually be seen in the first fields just to the right (north) of the track as you pass through the gate from the car park.  This is a first for the area.
