Fly Flats etc

Another wild afternoon with sideways hail from >NW
3 Common Gulls (1adult) came in with a Black-headed Gull for shelter but couldn't find any so they sat it out in the middle !
No sign of any Herring Gulls this afternoon, just 3 ad L B B Gulls and 2 each Redshank, oystercatcher and Common Sandpipers.

Withens Head - 3 Golden Plover

Nolstar - 5 Golden Plover and a single Dunlin with them in the snow was unexpected.
Also  2 Skylarks

 Distant Dunlin
Golden Plover

Nice Dunlin Dave.

Good find Dave, that could easily have been overlooked. Found it again this evening with 9 Goldies

Hope you got some better shots than me with 'big bertha' lens.

Not really, too distant and dull and its always a nightmare taking birds in the grass for some reason.
