Fly Flatts

                                     1 of 3 Golden Plover
                                      4 Common Sandpipers present

                           2 Barnacles up on the moor
                                  and then in the water.

1530 hrs and a pleasant visit to Fly Flatts to get some seed down. The wind was blowing SW>5 but although it was cloudy it was unusually warm for this venue. A Golden Plover was in the field by the top gate whilst 2 were in the Nolstar field.
                                                            Quiet on the wader scene with Common Sands, Oystercatchers and Redshanks along the length of the west bank whilst 6 Herring gulls were still quartering the moor. The 2 Barnacles were again with Canadas up above the sailing club before flying down onto the water. Plenty Swifts feeding and slowly moving North along with a few Swallows.

Those Common Sandpipers must love you - or have they got used to you visiting them. Nice pics Bri.

Some are very flighty but some will walk below you if you lay still on the top of the banking
