A 2nd dabble at Fly Flatts, pm

                  A good turn out of boats today
      Problem here is there are no Give Way signs
                                   Man overboard, scuppered
                                                  Rescue boat on its way.
          This female Kestrel is becoming a nuisance
                         to the passerines.




                                            But what a cracking bird








Back to Fly Flatts at 1500 hrs with yet more Nyjer seed which so far has had a negative effect on attracting any Twite but its causing plenty interest with the Meadow Pipits and Wheatears so its not wasted and there still 3 month left with chance of Twite.
                                                          A perfect bright grey sky in contrast to this mornings blue with the wind moved around to the NW>4-5 and light specs of rain.
Plenty boats out today so waders were absent other than Common Sands whilst the only raptor showing was the local female Kestrel that once again had moved all the Mipits and Wheatears away from the west bank where it was patrolling throughout.
                                                     Whilst it was quiet I concentrated my time watching the Kestrel and trying to get that perfect shot experimenting with different exposures and settings whilst trying at the same time to watch the skies for that big raptor sighting that didn,t happen.
