Foggy Fly Flatts (again)

                                      First light, good clear sunrise
                                                 Sun lifting to clear skies
                                                 Blue sky with slight broken cloud
                                    Visibility good, ready for a good session
                                           Oh no !  Fog heading in.
                                            Close down !!!!

Fly Flatts, 0700-0915 hrs  Bright sunrise then fog by 0730hrs.

What started off looking like an excellent morning soon deteriorated as bank after bank of thick fog rolled in off the moor . Each bank passed leaving clear for a 5 minute period then another bank would shut it down again. By 0845 the area was blanked out completely.
The water was void of birds other than a single BHG whilst 5 Red Grouse and 2 Crows were on the moor and that was it.
Around 15 Chaffinch were at the Delvers.
Did I see a DS mobile on the way to Fly Flatts as I was leaving ?
