Raggalds Flood

                                        Raggalds Flood through the gloom

                                  Commons and Black Headed

A day of heavy sleet and snow showers turning to rain p.m. with fog till early afternoon. Wind increasing after dark to S>5.
With my dinner hour being in the middle of a heavy rain and sleet shower with fog I was going to write the dinner time dash off but after a report of Shoveler on EGP, see Calderbirds, I thought Raggalds Flood was worth a coat of looking at to see if any interesting wildfowl had dropped in.
The fog was a little less dense in the dip so it was possible to scan the water which held 11 Common gulls and 2 Black Headed but nothing more.
As NK and me discussed on the phone, it will probably be March before the flood comes into its own.
