                                              Goldies
                                     A good year for breeding Greylags
    Strange place to find a Willow Warbler in the nettles

                                       Goldies heading off >S



Fogged off at Fly Flatts this morning so down below the cloud base to a murky Leeshaw which cleared after 0900hrs.
Several Golden Plover were feeding in the fields before moving off >S and well as Lapwings.
Some shoreline showing but only other waders present were Oystercatchers.
Odd to find a Willow Warbler in a bunch of nettles amongst several juv Meadow Pipits.
Nice to meet KM up there who had recently in the past few days had Whimbrel and Green Sandpiper and a possible Yellow Legged Herring gull.
