Fly Flatts

                                                Plenty nesting Meadow Pipits
             Nyjer seed down but no Twite
                                            Shoreline starting to show
                   1 of 11 Common Sandpiper




                                     Plenty gulls on egg/chick watch

A foggy start to the morning then hazy sunshine on a stiff E>4.
Common Sandpipers were in good numbers with 11 just on the south shoreline which is now showing with the water receding fast.
Only the one Wheatear on the banking whilst 2 Goldies kept flying around overhead.
Swallows everywhere and Swifts moving through.

LBB gulls...........................15

Wheatear............................1
Curlew................................2
Golden Plover....................2
Oystercatchers....................4
Kestrel................................3

Some nice shots there Bri. Very sad situation up there especially strange at that time in a morning. Definitely puts you off leaving the car but not a lot of choice up there when there's a time factor and it's a good walk round anyway !
