Fly Flatts

Late afternoon check for me after BS had a Sanderling earlier in the afternoon, though it headed off high whilst he was there. I chanced it, after the rain and fog drifted on to the tops there, thinking if it did clear then something else might have dropped in !
Nothing new other than the usual Tufted Duck, Mallard, a few Teal and Canadas.
Just about to head off when a S E Owl landed on a nearby wall, looking  a bit wet. Quite a dark bird with a very prominent white facial disc. Well worth the visit.

Down the road near the wind-farm car park it suddenly poured down and c20 Pied Wagtails and a dozen or so Meadow Pipits came down in then rain to feed on the roadside. Signs of movement there !
