19:30 (ish) Dull, Humid and Wet.
I had a late visit to Leeshaw Reservoir, Oxenhope this evening.
The visit was marred by a downpour and a motorbike zooming along the side of the reservoir.
A pr. Little Owl were seen, in the rain, as I approached Leeming - one landed on a post and waited 'till I stopped the car, and got out in the rain before leaving.
The reservoir was quiet (but not QUIET).
A few Greylag Geese were on the water with young.
They soon moved out of sight, below the near banking.
Pr. Oystercatcher, Many Lapwing, Stock Dove,Curlew calling from the moor.
Pied Wagtail and 2 Heron was about it.
A Cuckoo was calling from high up (SE )
