Flukey flight shots!







Above - some flight shots of waders taken yesterday. Bar tailed Godwit, Dunlin and Ringed Plover. Not easy to digi-scope hence the title...

No sign of the Glaucous Gull this morning. Most of the large gulls having moved on elsewhere. Two imm male Scaup were with Tufted Duck on the quarry and a Willow Tit called nearby.
