Back on Wader Watch, Fly Flatts

               More Common Sandpiper pics Im afraid


 Odd combination. Common Sand and Reed Bunting
                                Herring gulls












 The main purpose of the visit. To get some Nyjer seed down.

                              The Twite feeding station area

1630 hrs and back to Fly Flatts to get 2 bags of Nyjer seed down ready for me to check on in the morning. The wind was increasing to S>5 with strong winds forecast for tomorrow coming from the east which may blow us some goodies in.
                                                                 This evenings birds were much the same as yesterday with a count of 8 Common Sandpiper, 6 Wheatear and a single male Reed Bunting + the usual species but the bird of the night was 9 Herring gulls ranging from 2nd, 3rd and 4th year with no adults. The gulls kept flying around and landing on the water at the northern end before eventually heading off >W.
                                                                 Plenty Swallows moving >N but no Swift as yet although they are starting to show around the Barden area now.
