Fly Flatts

Pretty quiet this morning with no sign of moving birds in the calm, humid conditions. Unusual for this upland site to be so still and no wind.
1 Common Sandpiper, 2 Dunlin and a few Lapwings were the only waders seen.
3 Wheatears were on the walls at the NE corner of the Res'r.
Only one Meadow Pipit, though in the coming weeks we would expect a lot more as they start to move south. No Swallows either.
2 Ravens earlier, 3 distant Buzzards, 2 Sparrowhawks also distant and the usual Kestrels.
Usual duck species present and just a few Canada's.
Hopefully something will turn up for BS's visit this afternoon. Stand by !!
