Raggalds Flood





A quick tea time check of the Raggalds Floods today after NKs report of several gulls present this a.m. proved poor with just 4 Commons, 2 Black Headed and 4pr Mallard. The wind was blasting across WNW>7 gusting 8 with showers in amongst the sunny spells. This site seems a dead cert for Wigeon with all the grazing area  so we live in hopes.
Lower down and out of the wind Shelf Moor turned up a few Fieldfare and Redwings last light with 2 Mistle Thrushes in the Hawthorn field. The Lapwing flock seem to have moved on temporarily.
Looking a bit sad for the mornings session with still strong winds and showers forecast.

I hope you're not going to risk losing everything at Fly Flatts!

If this wind persists I,ll probably head lower though,ever the optimist, I always think something could have been blown in and I,d like to check out the Delvers for Brambling. Having said all that I,ll probably end up at Ogden .
