Fly Flatts etc

Fly Flatts. An early returning bird report from BS this morning with an Oystercatcher. I had  a trip up there late morning. It was still there sheltering on the west bank as the weather closed in and the rain came sideways. Not much else there other than 4 Mallard hunkered down and Red Grouse on the moor. An early lamb with the flock didn't look too happy !

On the way back I checked the fields opposite the wind-farm. Around 180 Starlings and 20 Fieldfare.

Cromwell Bottom for an hour or so this afternoon didn't turn up a lot. Usual species including 3 Goldeneye on the ski-lake and 2 skeins of Pink-footed Geese battling against the blustery westerly wind - 134 at 15:00 and 98 at 15:45.
