Fly Flatts/ Cold Edge Dams

                                      1 of 4 Common Sandpipers
                                         Plenty Swifts moving through
                                               A good year for Curlew

                                      Willow Warbler

Usually the weathers too bad on a Sunday morning but today it was too good with blue skies and slight SE>2 leaving the skies quiet apart from several Swifts and Swallows moving through.
An early start at Fly Flatts flopped when I found it heaving with wind surfers and general public so after a walk on the top road it was down to Cold Edge Dams to try and rescue the morning.
Things there were quiet but theres always something to see although no sound from DJSs Groppers.

Glad the Little Grebe is still there as no sign of it last week but it's easy to hide away. Good to see you this afternoon Bri.
