Dinner time Dash

                    Looking over the old station to the brick chimney and Fox Brow.                  
                                                               

A bright clear day only spoilt by having to work but a call from NK late morning gave me the excuse to dash out at lunchtime in search of a pair of Teal on Raggalds Flood, a rare local bird to get as well as a site and annual tick however, dopey me looked in the wrong area and with only 10 minutes spare I had to accept a dip.
On the way back to work, in order to try to save the day, I stopped off above the Dailies and looked down over the old railway station but other than a few distant winter thrushes all was quiet with empty skies, a nice flock of Pinkies would have done nicely but not to be so it was back to the garage to get those cars mended with an empty camera.
Did anyone get a photo of that cracking sunset tonight, I could partly see it but not in a position from the garage to get a photo.

I suppose I took it for granted that you knew the field concerned, but as you pointed out, it can't be seen if your driving along. Never mind, now you'll be genned up for when the next goodie appears.
