No wildlife sightings including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned on this blog throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals. BS.

Also today at Fly Flatts. late p.m.


                                     Rough water
            Dark clouds and a long walk back to the car
                                 1 of 4 Common Sandpipers

                                        1 of 7 Wheatear


           DJSs Golden Plovers still present





A bleak late afternoon visit to Fly Flatts to get some seed down in case the morning is written off.
A strong N>5 was blowing with heavy hail and snow showers but good visibility.
The rough water was void of bird life, not even a Canada goose showing.
Common Sandpiper numbers are slowly building with 4 along the south banking.
7 Wheatears were present but very flighty whilst 6 Swallows flew >N low over the water looking strange in the snow showers.
7 Golden Plover found by DJS were still in the field near the farm but none showing in the other usual fields.
