During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Dunlin Day. Fly Flatts

                                           1 of 7 Dunlin



                                                               Dunlin in flight
                                                 1 of 12 Common Sandpiper
                                                                 Dunlin






0645 hrs trying to beat the nasty hot stuff but failing as already the sun was high and temperatures rising quickly with no cooling breeze today, just a slight W>2 and 100% blue sky.
                                                               The shoreline was alive with Common Sandpipers and Dunlin along with noisy Redshank keeping their distance. At least 3 very young Common Sandpipers were spotted briefly before they went to ground under stones after hearing the adult bird alarm call.
                                                                   Just the usual geese on the water whilst 4 Herring gulls circled very high overhead.

7 Dunlin
12 Common Sandpipers
4 Redshank
4 Herring gulls
8 Curlew
+ usual sp.
