Cold Edge Dams

            This Common Sand with a bad foot manages the rocks ok.



The silly season strikes again.
Hot and sunny with a stiff E>4
Arrived early at Fly Flatts 0715hrs only to find some sort of boat regatta being prepared so a quick turn about to Cold Edge Dams where there was disturbance from a digger working and people, dogs and bikes everywhere.
Other than 3 Common Sandpipers and the usual sp. the area was void of birds. Roll on autumn.

I chose not to go birding so stayed in the back yard and got singing Blackbird a few metres away. Flybys were 4 House Martin and a Grey Wagtail; I'll see what tomorrow brings.
Whats the shoreline like at those two overcrowded venues?

No shoreline at all at CED and never even got out of the car at Fly Flatts as it would have been a waste of time.

Shame about the problems early on Bri after the effort of getting up there! I didn't bother going out this afternoon as the hot weather brigade just get out to spoil the peace and quiet. Stayed around to do some gardening! A few local Swifts about and 6 LBBG's went over high and that was about it. Still a few Coal Tits coming for black sunflower seed in the garden.
