A Hectic Morning

After a txt from DJS via BS I was on my way courtesy of DW to find 13 Whooper Swan on Mixenden Reservoir (approx 1015hrs) which were greatly appreciated being camera user friendly as well as a local winter annual.

Cold Edge Dams: 1 Greylag, 2 Barnacle and several Canada Geese. 1 each Curlew, Oystercatcher, Red Grouse. A couple of  small flocks of Lapwing were circling. Also single Skylark, Reed Bunting & Goldeneye.

Then it was up to Swalesmoor for the Ringby Top (Pule Hill on Birdguides) Snow Bunting. How fitting that we should meet DJS on the way back complete with smiling face😁.
The bird appeared after a 10 min search and put on a great show for us both.

Thanks for the trip Dave.
