Fly Flatts

                                                Plenty nesting Meadow Pipits
             Nyjer seed down but no Twite
                                            Shoreline starting to show
                   1 of 11 Common Sandpiper




                                     Plenty gulls on egg/chick watch

A foggy start to the morning then hazy sunshine on a stiff E>4.
Common Sandpipers were in good numbers with 11 just on the south shoreline which is now showing with the water receding fast.
Only the one Wheatear on the banking whilst 2 Goldies kept flying around overhead.
Swallows everywhere and Swifts moving through.

Curlew................................2

Some nice shots there Bri. Very sad situation up there especially strange at that time in a morning. Definitely puts you off leaving the car but not a lot of choice up there when there's a time factor and it's a good walk round anyway !
