A family trip to Staveley (a recently expanded YWT reserve near Boroughbridge) late this morning with the family was quite fruitful with views of Water Rail from one of the East Lagoon hides.
The other highlight was picking up a Marsh Tit when chatting with Maurice Local.
Surprisingly no Yellowhammer, Siskin or Redpoll before heavy rain put the dampers on things.
