Fly Flatts and Withens Head

This afternoon a few thrushes were still on the move with 25 and 85 Fieldfare and c20 Redwings >NW over in the direction of Castle Carr

Also on the res'r a drake Common Scoter and the Scaup which has reappeared after a few days absence. Both were diving and feeding out in the middle of the res'r and also close to the embankment. Its a scope job from the top road !

1 Kestrel
1 male Sparrowhawk over >SW
