Oystercatchers on the move

                      A deserted Raggalds Flood today


Heavy overnight snow continuing till late morning soon thawed leaving a bright day with blue skies and W>4 then a good covering of snow after dark this evening turning to ice.
Raggalds Flood was void of birds this lunch time but I learnt later from a mechanic at the nearby garage that a black and white bird with orange legs and long orange bill had been there yesterday morning which coincides with other Oystercatchers being seen heading up the Aire Valley,( B.O.G.)
Another skein of Pinkies past the Roper Lane watch point passing over Ringby late afternoon. Thanks to AC for the prompt message saying they were heading my way but after 10 minutes in the car park, camera in hand, they were seen by DJS to the west of me, another near miss.

Lets hope the oystercatcher can cope with the freezing weather. It's nasty out there tonight.
