Fly Flatts



                                         6 Twite back at the seed

                                                   4 Oystercatchers in late morning

Good visibility, blue skies and sunshine. Early frost , cold NW>5.  0700-1000hrs.

Soon gave up the idea of the target birds and concentrated on getting any bird at all. Deadly quiet both on the water and in the air with not a bird of interest until 0915 when 6 Twite came in to the station but remained very flighty. Four Oystercatchers flew in just as I was returning to the car, otherwise a very poor morning.

6 Twite
4 Oystercatchers
3 Red Grouse
2 Pheasants
+ usual Mipits, Curlew and corvids etc.
Sev Canadas and Mallard.

Yeah, great flight shots of the Oycs, Brian.

Good to get the Twite - but they seem to be only just hanging on around that site. Nice shots Bri.
