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 .

Fogged off yet again at Fly Flatts

A bright morning with some sun and blue sky, that was until I got past the Withins to find black ice on the road with a temperature of 1 degree and fog patches.
                                                                   Down at the water the fog was mainly confined to the moor leaving the reservoir clear and some overhead visibility with the reservoir now fully thawed out.
                                                                 A walk along the west bank produced nothing bird wise as the fog started rolling in and within 15 minutes the whole area was blanked out. After that it was a case of the fog clearing partially only to be blanked out again by another blanket of fog.
                                                            In a desperate last attempt of finding bird life I checked around the boat compound but once again finding nothing so the 2 hours up there ended up producing me 2 Red Grouse. What a depressing place Fly Flatts can be in the winter months with so far no winter wildfowl on the water and just the one Snow Bunting.
