Shirt Sleeves at Fly Flatts.




                                               More Stonechat arrive



A late afternoon visit to Fly Flatts found a light SE>3 blowing with 20 % cloud cover and 14 degrees
in the sunshine feeling like mid summer, real shirt sleeve material though not very good for the birds which were lounging about reluctant to move.
                                                               Around the same number of Lapwing as yesterday were present lining the east bank and down by the waters edge now that the peninsular is showing along with a daily increasing number of Canada geese.
                                                          The 3 Stonechats were still present along with a new pair that were moving between the reed bed and the compound fence. Otherwise thing were quiet just like a lazy summers afternoon apart from the usual nuggets that always appear when the sun shines.
