Heading up towards Fly Flatts this afternoon with Nick but the fog was down to Wainstalls so we headed up to Ringstone - not much better up there with a cold blustery wind, rain and mist closing in from the west. Met DF up there following  his big spend !! searching for a different wader with the 'goldie' flock but we couldn't find anything.
c170 Golden Plover, 2 Oystercatchers, 1 Snipe and a few Lapwings in the big field
2 Little Grebe
1 Swallow
1 Willow Warbler
......and that was just about it as the weather deteriorated further.

I called later after the mist lifted and about half the 'goldies' headed off high >E leaving 83 there when I left.
