A trip to Leeshaw this afternoon, after my sponge fight with Abigail in the garden, was abandoned during the thunderstorm.
'appen as well , I was very, very wet and loosing badly.
I was hoping the storm might have brought with it a Tern or three, but I did not have any luck there.
The birds on the reservoir shoreline are just on the periphery of my bins and camera unfortunately.
3 Oystercatcher (at least).
Lapwing in good numbers with chicks in amongst.
Curlew were very few, with maybe 4 seen during my stay.

2 Redshank in the tall grass - probably others as well.
4 Black Headed Gull.
10 Large Gulls including Lesser Black-backed and at least one Herring Gull.
2 Stock Dove.
Little Ringed Plover.
A good search for Little Owl failed to locate it!
