Fly Flatts, early a.m.

                                        A good year for Curlew
                      Common Sandpipers always present

  Mallards moving from the moor to the water
               Around 50 Canada goslings counted

                                                   YUK !!

                               

                           1 of 3 Oystercatchers
                                Lapwing chicks growing well.

Fly Flatts   0645 - 0930 hrs Cloudy damp start then brightening mid watch.
                                                 My good run had to expire at some point and this morning it did with nothing exceptional showing although plenty birds and a pleasant session.
Photography was hard work with the fast changing skies from dark to bright having to adjust the settings nearly every shot to keep out the camera blinkies.
                                                                                Much quieter on the waders making me think the Dunlin and Redshank must come in off the moor on an evening as that seems to be the busy tlme.

4 Common Sandpiper
3 Oystercatchers
2 Redshank
8 Curlew
sev House Martins
1 Distant Buzzard to the NW
+ usual sp.

24 Rooks in Nolstar field, an unusual species for this location.
