Fly Flatts

Late morning with a gale blowing and driving rain but the cloud base was higher so visibilty was not too bad.
12 Teal and 2 Tufted Duck found on the res'r then I spotted a medium sized wader. First impression was a Knot but I wasn't sure identification was correct so I headed down to the north shore. Sure enough it was a Knot and I managed to get off a few 'digi' shots in the rain

Well done dave another good find, puts me on 140 and DF on 143. Calderdale has already hit 160 for the year, I think 162 is the most we every recorded in a calender year.
