1st session of the year

                                     Fly Flatts , bright and breezy

                                      Raggalds gulls but no fowl
                                 173 Lapwing Tracys Wheatear field

                                        Plenty Starlings with Lapwings
                                         Little Owl, Green Lane

Fly Flatts  Strong WNW>5-6  Bright and dry
Very quiet at Fly with nothing on the water and empty skies, only birds present were 2 Fieldfare and 1 Red Grouse.
Raggalds flood held around 12 Common gulls and 5 Black Headed but no fowl.
To try save the morning checked the Lapwing flock for Goldies although an earlier call from NK had confirmed none.
The flock of 173 had moved down to Tracys Wheatear field by the layby as someone was tending to horses in their usual field. Several Starlings were in amongst them.
Corporal Lane and hill were quiet but the Little Owl was out on Green Lane, and near the Deanstones end around 40 Fieldfare were up briefly at the other side of the valley after being disturbed by a dog walker.
Just 14 sp. this morning to start the year off.
Had 3 goose sp. >W over Mixenden res on the way this morning, possible Pinkies but still near dark and driving so will have to go on the list of  cud av bins.
 Hoping to get chance of another dabble late afternoon depending what the gaffer has planned for us this afternoon.
