Fly Flatts/ Cold Edge.

            Plenty Swallows on the move
                 LBBs heading through
              BHGs at Cold Edge
     No just as impressive as Tracys gulls on the rocks shot
  Thought this juv LBB was the Skua DJS promised me.

A good start weather wise at Fly Flatts 0700hrs with a light ENE>2 and grey skies but by 0800hrs thick fog and heavy drizzle had piled in from the east forcing me to abandon and drop below the cloud base to Cold Edge Dams where there was more visibility but very few birds.
Swallows were the bird of the day with c 150 >E and >NE into the wind along with 4 House Martins.
LBBs were going through in the same direction but the water at both venues was deserted other than small numbers of Canadas, Mallards and a few BHGs.
