Fly Flatts

                                   Several Common Sandpipers

                                           Still 2 Wheatears hanging round

                                             Good passage of LBB gulls


                                          Curlews bred well
                                          1 of 2 Oystercatchers

A decent morning at Fly Flatts with perfect conditions early on before the sun came through and the clouds broke.
Grey cloudy skies with a slight NW>3 until 0930 when the clouds cleared leaving blue skies and sunshine.
No shoreline whatsoever now but Common Sandpipers hanging on in there along with Redshanks and Oystercatchers.
A good variety of gulls moving >W early doors with Black Headed, Common, Herring and Lesser Black Backed. The only other sky movers were Swallows and Swifts >N.
Hoped for Scoters on the water but not to be after last nights fog lifting early and letting things move on, hence the 4 moved from Ringstone.
