Northerly winds have indeed brought in the wildfowl - 5 whooper swans yesterday and 11 today on D reservoir - thanks to John Coish for the pics:
Jack (at an unearthly hour):
Along with a grey wagtail:
Interestingly when the guys went to pick the camera up today they flushed 5 snipe - each of them nearly stood on - which sounds very jack snipesque behaviour; so how many are in there?
We're going back to otters for the next camera outing - an interesting pile of spraints to focus on!
The belted galloways would look nice with a glossy ibis in their paddock? The bird seen recently at Hornsea Mere would be a nice 270th species for site...
