An icy start to the day at Fly Flatts with a biting cold NE>4 at 2 degrees with some ice on the lagoon but good clear visibility . By the end of the watch the temp was still only at 3 degrees but pleasant to be out in. By late afternoon the sky was clear and blue with sunshine at 9 degrees on a NE>3.
                               A few big gulls over with LBBs in the morning and Herrings in the afternoon all >NE but none dropping down onto the water.
The 3 Redshank were still present along with 4 Ringed Plover sticking mainly to the east bank out of the cold wind. Several Snipe are up chipping in the top fields where 2 Red Legged Partridge were present.
                            Plenty noisy activity with the Curlew, Lapwing and geese whilst several Meadow Pipits are now established. Only 1 Wheatear showing briefly today still in partial autumn/winter plumage.
