Away from the maddening crowd and heat. Fly Flatts

                                        2 Barnacles still present
                                       3 flighty Redshank present




                                 Lapwings still defending chicks

                              2 of 5 Common Sandpipers
      Waders improving, 2 of 8 Dunlin.











In search of peace and quiet and somewhere cool I arrived at Fly Flatts at 1500hrs to find just that.
Not a soul for miles and a cool SE>4 blowing across the water. After checking the water, which just held Canadas, Greylags and 2 Barnacles I got some seed down and then settled down to sort through the waders. At least 5 Common Sandpipers were present along with 3 very flighty Redshank giving me some good practice for flight shots.
                                                            The bird of the day was Dunlin with 8 found by scoping along the East shoreline, some at distance and some near enough to zoom in on. With the water level still dropping we may manage to attract something else down over the weekend.
2 Goldies were still in the Nolstar field.
