Fly Flatts p.m.

                   Up to 4 juv Common Sandpipers about now




                 Late starter Canadas.



Fly Flatts  Hot and sticky with a light W>3 and sunshine,
                                     Nothing much to get the taste buds going this late afternoon visit with quiet skies and just the usual geese on the water. Once again Common Sandpipers were everywhere with at least 4 juvs along the shoreline now. Its amazing how these little ones can just disappear out of view in a second not to be relocated even though you know the spot they are in.
                                                            Dunlins made a brief appearance with 2 flying low over the water and dropping down into a reed bed on the moor whilst the Redshanks seem to have moved on along with several Curlew leaving the area much quieter now without the Curlews calling.
Soon dispersion will begin to build up with birds starting to leave the moor usually beginning with Curlew and Lapwing, the latter already starting to group on the shoreline. Meadow Pipits are usually the last to go with some left to over winter.
                                                                    Another 3 weeks and we should be seeing the first returning Wheatears on the moor. No more returning Common Scoters as yet but I,m sure we,ll get a few more over the next 2 month along with a Tern or two.
