Fly Flatts, early Sunday morn.

  The 2 well established Barnacles
 Wheatears love the rabbit burrows in the banking

                         Redshank present at distance, north shore

                                          LBBs through high and >W

Fly Flatts 0730-0930 hrs. Despite last nights local weather forecast of heavy rain all day the morning was bright with 30 % cloud cover and excellent visibility on a light NNE > 3-4. The sun shone and the sky was blue but I put up with that as I was expecting rain throughout so best of the two.
                                                                      A Falcon, Wader morning with more Common Sandpipers in and a Redshank present along with 3 Dunlin whilst raptor wise 2 brown Peregrine flew over the Nab with a Kestrel nearby and 2 quick sightings of a female Merlin out over the moor.
                                                                     Wheatears were back in force whilst Meadow Pipits were everywhere, I,ll try box some Mipits up and send them down to Oxford Mick.
LBBs were moving >W whilst a trickle of BHGs headed >NW along with plenty Swifts and Swallows.

15 Wheatear
3 Dunlin
6 Common Sandpiper
1 Redshank
1 Snipe
2 Peregrine
