Fly Flatts/ The Delvers

                                              Goldfinch
                                                          Starling flocks

                                                     Redwings

Managed to get to Fly Flatts after a few weeks of fog only to find heavy snow showers and mist clouds rolling in off the moor. The area was deserted of birds both on the water and in the sky and other than a few Red Grouse and corvids nothing was seen. The snow was getting heavier and the road bad so made a fast exit after checking the Twite feeding area to no avail and was driving back disappointed until I got to the Delvers where the area was alive with birds. Finches, Redwings, Starlings and Blackbirds were feeding in the field but no signs of Brambling as yet but Im sure they,ll come.

A good do at the Delvers - always worth a check there in winter and some nice shots of the Redwings etc.
