19th April 2011, Slipper Hill Reservoir

A quick, mid-day visit to Lower Foulridge yielded very little and with water levels
still high i decided to check nearby Slipper Hill Res'. The local water authority have
been using the water from this reservoir to keep the canal topped up. It had dropped
massively since a previous visit recently, with lot's of mud exposed.
Three Little-Ringed Plovers were the only waders but it warrants coverage this spring.
Goosander, 5 Teal, 2 Tufted Duck and a showy Grey Heron made up the cast.
