Low Barugh Sewage Farm / Low Moor Midhope 19/2/17.L

Low Barugh - As expected, fewer birds in milder weather. Common Chiffchaff 2, Pied Wag 50, Reed Bunting 6, Linnet flock 32 down in nearby field. Low Moor - Misty here on arrival so anything welcome. A short stay had 25 Lapwing and 1 Curlew back, all down until flushed by a Sparrowhawk which perched on a post for a good 15 minutes. Top bird here was a Merlin through, before lost to view over pike lowe. Siskin 15 and 20 Teal on midhope res. No sign of any Goldeneye.
