Another welcome visitor to Fly Flatts, Common Scoter.

                                                       Drake Common Scoter



                                       New in today, Redshank




                                    Road blocked this morning with abandoned stolen vehicle.

                                    2 Barnacles, Canadas and Common Scoter.



                                            3 Oystercatchers present.

 A bright and breezy morning with a mild but moderate SW>4-5 turning W>4 with broken cloud and sunshine at 14 degrees.
                           A pleasing visit from the sixth Common Scoter of the year to this site but ,as usual, keeping well into the middle of the water at all times. Surprisingly, the Scoter was still present late afternoon despite wind surfers on the water.
                        Another new in visitor was a Redshank which I hoped for Spotted but not to be. Three Redshank were on the far shore throughout along with 4 Wheatear, 5 LBB and 3 juv BH gulls.
                       A couple of Kestrel were working the west bank, the best count I,ve had of this species this year whilst a single Buzzard was over the Nab.
                       As I was tackling up at 1000 hrs this morning another Greenshank dropped in from very high NE and landed on the north shore but well out of range for the camera. When I returned late afternoon the Redshank was still present but no sign of the Greenshank.
