Wet & Foggy Fly Flatts

            Took a trip up to Fly Flatts today but not much to see
            in the rain and the fog, Kestrels braved it for a while and
            a few Swallows darting about and seen a few juvenile birds
            knocking about but as I'm no expert I can't always tell what they
            are, and a few gulls around as well,  I didn't even see the Canada's
            today. 4 Pied Wagtails, juv Wheatear ? and juv Meadow Pipit ?
            Also went up on the Oxenhope rd above Hebden Bridge where
            Kestrels were in abundance and also Crows.

            Garden had Gold, Green and Chaffinch, Jackdaws,Magpies,
            Collared Doves & Wood Pigeons and 4 House Sparrows which
            is unusual.




  1. Nice Kestrel shot Dave.
    Shame about the weather.


  2. It was dismal all day up at fly flats, mist & fog kept creeping in, I think it brightened up once I was on my way home just my luck.
