Fly Flatts

A quick hour or so before tea ! When I got there, there were 3 large gulls on the shore but I was looking into the light so I legged it down the far end to try get a better view with the scope but they went before  could i d them - possibly a Gt B B Gull and 2 Herring Gull types - dash !!
It was worthwhile though, as I found 2 Dunlin, 3 Snipe, 12 Teal, 1 Tufted Duck and a Wheatear on the mud.
4+ Kestrels still around as well as plenty of Red Grouse.

Earlier in the day AC had 160 Lapwings on the mud though they moved off towards Thornton Moor along with an unidentified small wader. The mud is getting even more extensive with this dry spell of weather.
