Wind shards, where?Follow

So I like to craft, but almost everything is needing wind shards and I'm getting very, very few of them (just a couple random ones here and there from logging).

I know they drop from flying monsters, but I'm having a really hard time finding a good place to farm them. I started in Gridania and there are the bees near streams, but at most I see two of them and the respawn is long.

I've heard LL has a lot you can get from Ewes, but I can't find them anywhere? I see Puk's everywhere but they're probably way too strong for me (CON 7, they con red to me).

Didn't see anything when I passed through Ul'dah.

Any ideas?

Pretty much any type of flying mobs (except for Fireflys).

Thats actually one thing I found during the open beta that i'm glad I took the time to figure out. I start out in ul'dah (like the city), so around 7 pug I took the ferry over to LL. If you head south on the map there is a lighthouse drawn just about directly south of LL's first camp (can't remember name atm).

This area has TONS of lost ewes and they drop lots of wind shards (and sheepskin for us leatherworkers :P). This area was pretty crowded last night, MUCH moreso than open beta so getting mobs may be rough. But i'm making away with a decent amount of shards last night for the hour or so I was there.
