Around and about!

A few short trips out in between other things today. I tried Fly Flatts early on not expecting BS's Sandwich Tern from yesterday to be still there - and it wasn't ! Though the fog kept rolling in so I went down to Withens Head
c35 Fieldfares, 100+ Starlings and 4 Redshank but still no Wheatear.

I headed down to check the muddy field below Nolstar - highlight of the day there with a count of 28 Skylarks alongside a few mipits, Pied Wagtails, 5 Redshank, 2 Oystercatchers, 5 Golden Plover, c8 Lapwings and a Curlew.
Then to Wainstalls Lane where a nice flock of 35+Meadow Pipits were present, though flighty in one field.

A good Skylark count Dave , a field worth keeping an eye on there.
