Fly Flatts etc

This morning
3 Black-headed Gull
1 L B B Gull
1 Grey Heron
2 Common Sandpipers
2 Redshank
10+ Curlew (all over the place)
c10 Swifts
1 male Stonechat and 1 male Twite at the feeding station
c60 Rooks feeding in the fields above the res'r - this is usually a very rare bird At Fly Flatts - but there were around 25 juveniles with the adults and they had obviously found a decent food source there.

Also at the top end of Luddenden Dean - 1 Tree Pipit singing

Things are just starting to move with the gulls now. Nice to find a Twite, havent had any up there for months despite regular feeding and have nt had a Stonechat or Whinchat this year.
Plenty Rooks around on Sunday near the turbines.
