Before the storm

Just did a quick tour of the local Reservoirs this-afternoon. They were sailing on Rishton Res so not much there. The four Great Crested Grebes were still present as were 41 Canada Geese. Up on Parsonage there were at least 11 Snipe on the small reservoir with the Little Grebes and Coot. another 69 Canada Geese with two Pink-footed Geese fed in the field. On the main reservoir, there were quite a fe duck (in comparison to recently anyway) - two Goldeneye, 13 Teal and three Wigeon.
We'll see what the storm brings tomorrow - not the ideal weather for winter atlas work so that'll have to be postponed a week or so.
