Fly Flatts

With the forecast of some heavy showers today I gave Fly Flatts a try for nearly 2 hrs late morning in case any terns (or anything else for that matter) might come through and drop in.
1 very heavy shower - 1 Swallow and 1 Herring Gull both >N and that was it apart from a few very high Meadow Pipits
2 Common Sandpipers and 2 Oystercatchers were constantly disturbed by wind surfers so no chance of any migrant waders on the shoreline (which is just appearing nicely)!
Kestrels showing well and that was about it.

4 Snipe, 1 Golden Plover and 2 Curlew at Withens Head along with a pair of Wheatear and a few Swallows

Not the best of days for trudging around Fly Flatts.
Swift and Twite tomorrow, weather permitting.
