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.

Any sighting of birds of a sensitive nature throughout the breeding season will be omitted from the blog if I believe that in any way it could jeopardize the welfare or breeding of the species .

Back to the wild west. Fly Flatts. pm

                                     Canada numbers increasing . 2 of 18

                                                         
                     Riding choppy waters
                                         Deep swell
                                         Down in a trough

A flying visit to Fly Flatts late pm with just time to check the water , the boat yard area and a bit of sky watching, found it back to atrocious weather with a moderate W>5 and cloudy with drizzle soon coming over the moor followed by fog.
                                                              Canada geese numbers had risen to 18, some braving the rough water with a deep swell , white horses and splashing over the east bank.
                                                               15 minutes sky watching before the fog rolled in produced 2 distant Raven beyond the flat moor and 9 Black Headed gulls >NE.
Unbelievable how the weather can be so different up on that top ridge at Fly Flatts but I suppose thats what makes it so unique.
