During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

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.
