Fly Flatts/ Hunter Hill

A blustery Fly Flatts

Remember the north shoreline

Dark skies over Hunter Hill

A poor start weather wise at Fly Flatts with S>4 increasing S>6 and drizzle with moderate visibility.
Skies were lively until 0915 when movement stopped other than a few Starlings powering through.
The sight of the morning was a flock of c150 Starings carpet crawling over the moor like a black cloud, and 3 Wigeon over heading north.
A single female Goosander was on the water which was unusual.
Hunter Hill was much calmer wind wise but had empty skies other than a few corvids. Three blogging Mipits there were the only ones seen and the moor at Fly Flatts seemed strangely quiet without them.
