Leeshaw/ Fly Flatts

             Leeshaw held 10 Cormorant


  Distant shots in the rain. Trout for breakfast
  If you,re squeamish look away now








A foggy start clearing before rain and more fog by 0900hrs.
Leeshaw had a record of 10 Cormorants with 3 more over >E.
Otherwise it was quiet with nothing on the shoreline

Fly Flatts was a foggy mess but the heavy rain cleared it enough for me to check it out.
