Fly Flatts

A reasonable bit of shoreline appearing but not a sign of any waders up there this afternoon.
1 Whinchat with c18 Wheaters on Stoney Edge and along the southern shoreline.
2 Golden Plover on the moor but not a sign of any Twite at the feeding station unfortunately, though more Niger seed put down in anticipation!
2 shooters on the moor is bad news in my view!

Withens Head
1 Curlew
3 Wheatear
1 Little Owl

 Some shoreline appearing
 Wheatear (digiscoped)
Golden Plover (digiscoped)

Well spotted on the Whinchat Dave, its alive with Wheatear up there just now and as you say, the shoreline is starting to show.
Shame about the sad men with guns but amongst ever bed of roses you get a few pricks.
