Soil Hill to Mixenden

Starting off at 1035 hrs with a decent downpour but the day turned out to be good for birds.
A transient Owl turned out to be LEO and not the SEO I was hoping for but I'm not complaining. Others here: 2 Kestrel, Whitethroat, 7 Linnet, similar Meadow Pipit, 1 LBBG, 2 Blackbird.

Ogden Res just had the usual Gulls, 1 Cormorant, ditto Grey Wagtail & Nuthatch.
The golf course produced 1 m Stonechat and from there to Mixenden were 1 Wheatear, couple Meadow Pipit, c24 Canada & a few House Martin. Swallows were seen throughout.
The reservoir was busy with kayaks and people.
