Leeshaw/ Fly Flatts

   LEESHAW.                      YL Herring gull just dropped
                                              in on the wall
                          Still 2 Oystercatchers present
        Same 3rd year YL as last sighting here.



                                                   Heron stalking
                              juv Grey Wagtail

FLY FLATTS                      Barnacle goose in with Canadas.
                                                Taken from the top road.
A slightly better morning although very still and warm but fortunately without the sunshine.

Leeshaw was livelier with a flock of Lapwing in the new mown field along with 2 Curlew and a surprise to get a 3rd year Yellow Legged Herring gull dropping in which was probably the same bird as previous visit.
Fly Flatts produced the Barnacle goose as reported earlier this month by DJS and a pair of Tufted were on the water making me reach for the scope thinking they were Scoters.
