Fly Flatts


                      The Much awaited Golden Plover Photos


                       





                                               Several Common Sandpipers
                                                  LBBs moving >SW

A good morning weatherwise at Fly Flatts despite the wind that increased to near gale force at one point before easing again.  Grey cloudy skies  Wind S>4 increasing >7 then dropping >3.

A nice treat to find Golden Plover showing after a noticeable absence and the suprise of a Ringed Plover which flew over the water fast and low and dropped into the ponds at the SE corner.
Swifts were once again piling through all low and tucked into the hillside out of the wind.

5 Golden Plover
6 Common Sandpiper
2 Redshank
1 Ringed Plover
1 f Wheatear
19 LBBs.......................>SW

Great to know the Golden Plover are with us again - I love those pics. The RP turning up makes me think perhaps SH may get one or two waders dropping in again. (Delete think, insert dream)
