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.

Fly Flatts a.m.

First job was a check of Mixenden reservoir on passing only to find, as expected, yesterdays Whoopers had gone. Next check was Cold Edge Dams with no Whoopers and then on to Fly Flatts where the weather was acceptable with 100 % light grey cloud cover and a very light SW>2 increasing and turning to W>3, what happened to the north wind promised? Visibility was misty in the distance deteriorating as the watch went on with finally fog creeping over the moor cutting the watch short.
                  Very busy bird wise with the , now summer resident , Canadas, Curlews, Oystercatchers, Greylags and Mallards but still no sign of returning Meadow Pipits or Redshank.
Hopefully this mist will clear as the day goes on.
