Fogged off at Fly Flatts

                                         A thick bank of cloud over the water
                                       Good amounts of shoreline
                                           Visibility low
                                         Down at the feeding station
                                 0830hrs and lights on, fog moves
          Feeding station. not a Twite in sight, plenty seed down

                                NW corner shoreline
                          A good year for Common Sandpiper

Fly Flatts 0700-1000hrs  Strong WNW>6 Thick fog then clearing with banks moving across.

Very little seen this morning with visibility down to 30yds until 0830hrs when it cleared but fog banks continued to move across annoyingly.
Meadow Pipits are everywhere now with plenty juvs and some new birds moving in.
Over 300 Canadas and 8 Greylags were in the water or up on the grass with no sign of Barnacle or G.N.Diver.
Dunlin , Redshank and Common Sandpiper were present but sticking to the far shore.
3 Kestrels were up along with 7 LBB gulls over but all Curlews seem to have gone .
1 early returning Wheatear out on the rocks, sw corner.
Several House Martins were over Bradshaw.
