Fly Flatts

Common Scoter

A drake Common Scoter this morning at 09:00 (1st summer bird by the look of it). It was feeding in the shallows along the embankment at one time and  then left >N at around 10:30
1 Barnacle Goose still there with c40 Canada Geese as well
1 Common Sandpiper
18 Lapwings
5 Wheatears
A few Meadow Pipits
2 juvenile Kestrels in the rocks sheltering from the rain
15 Red Grouse

Plenty of shoreline to tempt some migrant waders in the next few weeks, hopefully.
No hirundines or Swifts moving this morning and still not a sign of any Twite at the feeding station !
