Fly Flatts, late p.m.

                                      A damp, misty, blustery Fly Flatts

                                            Curlews checking the place out


                                     Oystercatchers back on the moor

Fly Flatts   1545-1650hrs  Damp and grey with low cloud base and a howling W>6-7

Nothing on the water other than Canadas which are now up to a count of around 80.
Oysercatchers are back with 2 by the water and 2 in the field along with 4 Curlew which seemed to be sussing the place out.
No Redshank back yet and a good scan around Withens Gap failed to produce any Wheatear.

Raggalds Flood held 3 Lapwing and a Pied Wagtail at 0645hrs this morning after a quick visit on the way to work.

Hi Brian,
Had a stroll back of queensbury play gym this a.m. but the gale kept things very quiet.
Regards

Well done for giving Fly Dlatts a go. I think most of the Canada's have gone down to Cold Edge out of the wind!!
