Fly Flatts, above the clouds

                                            Plenty Red Grouse displaying

                                      Oystercatchers on the moor

                                             Curlews well established now

An unusually cracking morning weatherwise for Fly Flatts with wall to wall blue skies and sunshine and not a breath of wind.. Fog was hanging below in the valleys and was just starting to rise as I came away.
Meadow Pipits were moving through low over the moor and several Woodpigeons headed >N.
Target birds were Osprey, Whooper Swan and Wheatear of which I achieved a 3 out of 3 dip.

22 Curlew
2 Oystercatchers
2 Redshank
78 Canadas
12 Mallard
18 Red Grouse
138 Meadow Pipits.........................>N
29 Woodpigeons............................>N
Several blogging Mipits and Skylarks.
Got plenty Nyger down but too much disturbance for Twite with off lead dogs and nuggets on mountain bikes.

Did you creep up on them birds wearing a hide?
Nothing turned up on the hill after I phoned.
