Clear out of waders. More dispersion.

 

                                Willow Warblers moving through in the heavy drizzle.

                                   Very rare bird for Fly Flatts seen on passage only.

The morning session at Fly Flatts was abandoned due to thick fog on the tops and heavy rain on a moderate SW>4 gusting 5. Late afternoon was clear with sunshine and showers but still the strong SW>4 at a warm 18 degrees.
                               A walk the full length of the west bank and a scope all around the perimeter of the water failed to find a single wader of any description so its a matter of waiting for the next wave through. The problem this year is the waders are spoilt for choice with most reservoir being low so its going to be hit and miss as to what drops in here.
                           More dispersion was apparent with at least 6 Willow Warblers moving through as well as 8 Wheatears, mostly adults in moult, but all very flighty flitting along the shoreline.
                          Otherwise just 4 juv BH gull on the shoreline and a single Raven along with 2 LBB gulls overhead. Plenty Swallows about in no specific direction but no Swifts.
                         Another blustery south westerly tomorrow but forecast dry and hopefully fog free.
