Rain, Hail, Sleet and Snow, Welcome to Fly Flatts.

                                      Mipits now carrying nest material

                                              Good number of Curlew this year

                Not a common sight, Red Legged Partridge

Fly Flatts  0645-1000hrs. Early snow turning to sleet then torrential hail and rain showers clearing by 0930hrs. Calm at first then WNW>4.

A real horrendous start to the morning with shower after shower piling over from the west with the reservoir right up to the tops of the banking now.
Had to dip on any early moving Common Terns although conditions were ideal. Very little about with no Twite or Wheatear  but Oystercatchers, Redshank and Common Sandpiper were on the east shore .
Nice to get Red Legged Partridge which are getting rarer in the area since birds are no longer released at TMR.

2 Red Legged Partridge
3 Oystercatchers
2 Redshank
2 Common Sandpiper
1 Greylag goose
Usual Mips, Curlews, Canadas etc.
