Ringby Top, Ned Hill Watchpoint .

                                   LBBS coming through all day





                          Juv trailing a bad leg.

An early evening trip to Ringby found it rather quiet apart from several House Martins and Swallows moving through >SW and a second Gt Spotted Wdpecker  of the day >W over the valley, DCB also had 3 over the moor at Oxenhope this morning.
After a report from DJS of a Buzzard over Ned Hill and the distant sighting through the hazy sunshine of a bird being mobbed I decided it was time that I was over there.
On arrival at the watchpoint I soon found that the bird Id seen being mobbed was a Kestrel but gulls were coming through in good numbers with a cross over of LBBs heading >SE and Commons heading >NW.
A high Peregrine came out of the sun and disappeared >E whilst several blogging Meadow Pipits were at the site,
On leaving Ned Hill at 1800hrs I found that the Manfrotto monopod I had bought today for the camera had fallen out of my bag so it was another trek up to the top of Ringby where luckily I found it.

From the Raggalds go up Perseverence Road past the entrance to Soil Hill and as the road starts to drop down thats Ned hill which comes out opposite Ogden. Just as you start to drop down there is a track on the right blocked by large boulders. If you park by the boulders and walk along that track that is where I call the watchpoint looking straight across the Causeway Foot Col.
Also from this track you can walk up the banking on the right onto Soil Hill but beware of Nigel up there if he,s had a bad day.
