Raggalds Flood and nearby.



                                    New visitors to the flood field
      One of a pair of Lapwings holding territory
                                  New manure heaps, Old Guy Rd

Another bright spring like day although a cold breeze.

Raggalds Flood at lunch time held the now resident pair of Lapwings as well as 2pr Mallards and 3 Common gulls.
The nearby pylon field had another 5 Lapwing present along with around 40 small gulls and several corvids.
Old Guy Rd had the usual small gulls and corvids and again no Grey Partridge sightings.
Some good manure piles have been dumped in a field off Old Guy Rd to either be spread or left stored, either way it should attract something next month.
4 Herring gulls flew >W towards Fly Flatts but unlikely they,ll stop off.
A report from Roy Morris today of a Moorhen back on the ponds at Oats Royd and a close encounter he had with a Woodcock in the Gulf area, thanks for that Roy.

Hi Brian.Try the yellow brick road if you want quite.No seriously,Whitehall Road will take you directly onto inner ring road.Unfortunatly will not be quite at peak rush hours. I would make a note of floor you park on as they are not the same lift floors. By the way the multi storey is left at lights, if you find yourself driving past front of hospital,turn round. Best of luck. Graham.

Glad you are still managing to get some postings in Bri. Good to see the daylight is lengthening as well, won't be long to Wheatears now!
