Fly Flatts

            A welcome guest, drake Common Scoter



              Plenty Snipe moving through >E
       Canadas high and >E
                 Cormorant high and >E
        Unusual visitor, f Tufted

A decent morning both weather wise and bird wise with a cool E>4, low cloud with slight mist and drizzle.
Birds were moving well until 0800 when the skies started to brighten slightly.
A drake Common Scoter was on the water though as usual remained way out in the centre along with a female Tufted duck.
DJSs Whinchat was briefly on the wall by the farm and a real surprise in the same area was a Green Woodpecker on a fence post which unfortunately was too quick for me with the camera as it saw me as soon as I saw it, so it quickly headed >E low over the moor between the turbines.
