RE: Arnfield - Hollingworth - Surrounds


Hi,

I spotted 5 Ring Ouzels on the moor just above Arnfield reservoir. Around a rocky outcrop in the hillside on the public footpath. Arrived about 2 days ago. They were not there on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Quick look in whilst delivering in Hollingworth.

2 Black-headed Gulls having an icy cold splash in the centre of the res and 1 flying round above them, that was it, no other birds present!

Quick visit after Hobson Moor.

Disappointing as the only birds there that I saw were 3 Teal out on the reservoir, a single Woodpigeon and a Pied Wagtail over.

5 minute break approx 2.30 pm whilst on delivery in Hollingworth.

Very quiet, of note:
2 Common Sandpiper
2 Jackdaw
1 Grey Heron over
4 Swallows
...and seemingly very active fish, showing a lot of dorsal fins and doing partial jumps due to the high level of surface landing and low flying insects.

Had a walk around Arnfield reservoir, Swallow's wood and woods and moors to the west and north today, from 11:00 until 14:30.

Stunning day with loads of birds about, highlights being 3 ring ouzel feeding together around a small gorse patch, several redpoll displaying around the northern edge of the reservoir. Also willow warblers, blackcaps and wheatears seemingly everywhere, plus a single chiff chaff and several swallows.
