Fly Flatts/Leeshaw Reservoir

0645-1015hrs  
What started off to look like a cracking morning at Fly Flatts quickly deteriorated as the wind increased to WNW >6 gusting 7 and the mist rolled in from the west fogging the area out by 0715hrs.
To add to the problems the farmer was working by the Twite feeding station and a couple with 2 off lead dogs managed to flush everything in sight.
In a bid to rescue the morning I moved on to Leeshaw reservoir where things were much livelier but as expected  yesterdays Shelducks had moved on. See Dannys birds.
The icing on the cake was when I got home I found Id knocked the dial on the camera so all the photos were bright and out of focus!.
