Views around Fly Flatts from Sunday.

                 No, not a tidal estuary, Fly Flatts  SE corner
                      Come on you Waders
                                 A birders dream
                      Stone footways starting to show se corner
                            SW corner with the Nab in the background.
                                       NW  corner

                                 Everything but the birds now
      Looking west over Dean Head Reservoir,
        Stoodley Pike on the horizon.
        Twite feeding station, plenty seed down, no Twite.
                                    Heather in full bloom
                                  Beautiful countryside.
 Shame it will be tarnished next week with sad little men trudging all over it shooting owt that moves.
