Fly Flatts etc

Just about completely dead at Fly late morning - the strong >W was no help at all though an Arctic Skua went west over the Oxenhope watchpoint earlier on -  thanks to HC and BS for passing the message on. It probably went through our area ! A nice bird to find inland as was a Redwing for BS over Queensbury this morning (see BS's blog - West Yorkshire Birding). Well done Bri.

Bad luck at Fly Flats today Dave.
But with the S.E.O earlier in the week - you never know what to expect up there do you?
