Followed the lane that became a track alongside both reservoirs. The Lower Black Moss Reservoir had the most birds. Saw a male Mallard with an orange side. Was this a Mallard Wigeon cross?
Eventually came to Black Moss road and turned left and climbed. At a footpath on the left stopped for lunch then continued to a bend and a gate which was the start of a path and the return journey through Salt Pie, Foot House Gate and Overhouses farm. Also this gave views of the Reservoirs from the other side.
From Overhouses took a path on right just after a bridge to follow a stream back to Barley.
I had last done this walk in Feb 2017 when we saw 29 species.There was 33 species today.
All the party had a well deserved drink in The Calf's Head PH at Worston after a satisfying but cold walk around the reservoirs
