Views of Fly Flatts from yesterday

                               Plenty shoreline at the north end
                                     All we need now are the waders
                                       The north end spit
  Even with all the warning signs around the moor you still
              get nuggets lighting fires.
                                        The north shoreline
                       Canadas coming in early morn

                                        The Nab
                        From the south end

Another hot sticky day after some early morning mist.
Up to 80 Black Headed and Common gulls in Foxhill Park at 0530hrs this morning before the dog walkers came along, Common gulls now becoming a regular sight.
Still Swifts moving over with 8 at midday in migration mode >SW.
A Sparrowhawk ploughed into next doors conservatory  window yesterday evening with a juv Starling in its talons killing the Starling on impact but the Sparrowhawk dropped its prey and flew off uninjured. Although the Starling still died it escaped the nasty ordeal of being plucked alive.
A report today of an injured small raptor at the side of the road in Clayton with a droopy wing  but as he went to pick it up it managed to fly into some bushes, probably Kestrel or Sparrowhawk.

Looks like a week of rain starting friday Bri. Will that help the wader situation?
