An icy cold start at Fly Flatts at 0700 hrs in a strong SE>5 dropping slightly mid watch to ESE>4
with grey skies and light specks of rain.
Target birds today were Waders and Terns, Gordon at Skipton reported plenty Black Terns about, but not for me.
A walk along the full length of the reservoir produced 14 Common Sandpipers and 9 Wheatear as well as 6 Herring gulls .
                                   A Wheatear was on the Nyger seed and an usual 2 Dunnock whilst 11 Lapwing were on the northern shoreline .
                                           On the way back the Nolstar field held 21 Golden Plover with 2 Oystercatcher nearby.
