Fly Flatts revisited.

             SE>4 rippling the water.
        A good year for Common Sandpiper.

1600 hrs on another hot sticky day but a cooling SE>4 at Fly Flatts. Much quieter this evening with possible wind surfers being there earlier moving all the Dunlin and Redshank towards the centre of the reservoir along the east banking. A female Stonechat was briefly down near the feeding station along with a male Reed Bunting and a few Meadow Pipits. Once again nothing in the air but tomorrows promised rain and thunderstorms should stir things up a bit.
                                                          Common Sandpipers are enjoying a good season with the exposed shoreline and even using the edge of the moor with 7 counted between the boathouse and feeding station.
A Cuckoo was calling from the moor near the wind turbines whilst the Norstar field was empty other than corvids with several Swallow, Swift and House Martins feeding over the fields nearer to Wainstalls.
