Raggalds Flood



                                    Mallards galore total of 34
                                   Both ends of the water and on the banking
                               Distant  male Teal x2



                        Half the size of the Mallards .

           Very hard to find in this position by the far bank
                                     Flock of 58 Lapwing circling above

                                                Mean looking Crow
                                      A tranquil scene

Thanks to NK this morning for the call alerting me to 2 Teal on the Raggalds Flood, see his blog also, so I was able to shoot up there in my dinner hour to find a packed field.
34 Mallard were on and around the water along with the 2 drake Teal which took some finding sleeping against the far banking which I quite easily could have missed if I had,nt have known they were there.
A group of 58 Lapwings were circling overhead before moving off towards Soil Hill whilst 3 were on the deck.
Just ready for the Wigeon now !
