Fly Flatts/ Mixenden.

   Fly Flatts. A lonely Red Grouse stands on sentry
duty hoping the gun men don,t return.
                                        Large Starling flocks, Cold Edge Rd
      Newcomers to Mixenden, 1 pr Goosander
      Some from Ogden this a.m.  First light, fog dropping
                                 Clinging to the plantation.
                                                 Haze over the water


Another wasted journey to Fly Flatts this p.m. with 4 Red Grouse, 7 Mallard and plenty Starlings but if you dont go you dont know.
The Cold Edge Rd Plover field was also void of birds today.
                                                          On to Mixenden res where a pair of Goosanders were new in from yesterday whilst the male Goldeneye had also returned and was joined by 2 females, Otherwise it was down to a few small gulls and only 4 Mallard today.
I never thought I,d be pleased to hear a forecast of strong winds and rain coming but anything,s better than this persistent fog.
A report from Peter Turner today of Waxwings in a garden opposite his own on Cooper Lane, Banktop, Bfd.  Thanks for that Peter.
