Cold Edge am and Fly Flatts pm

Cold Edge this morning
The 12 Wigeon from yesterday had gone by this morning. Just one female Goosander and 8 Reed Buntings by the lower dam. Still 11 Moorhens around the site and 2 Kestrels.
5 Stonechats at Moorlands Farm near the Withens.

Late afternoon at Fly Flatts
22 Canada Geese and 1 Mallard.
A heavy shower brought an adult winter plumage Great Crested Grebe in along with 4 B H Gulls and 9 Lesser Black-backed Gulls. They were all still there when I left.

Not often we get Grebe up there Dave. I was fogged off this morning and didnt bother this afternoon as there are usually windsurfers there on Fridays.

It was after 4 pm when I got there so they may well have gone. You had a nice bird for the afternoon though !
