Fly Flatts  0645-1000hrs
A much better fresher morning wish low cloud and light drizzle early on with a strong WNW>6 easing >4.
Plenty inviting shoreline but no wader movement as yet with just 2 Common Sandpipers reluctant to move on. Several Lapwing around the shore and an increase in Canadas with the Barnacle still present.
Wheatears are well on the move now with 4 adults and 4 juvs present along with several juv Pied Wagtails.
2 noisy Ravens flew over in the distance and a family of 4 Kestrels were in the air together.
