During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Soil Hill last light visit

                                  Lapwings now holding territory
                                       Bit of sun on Ringby Top from Soil Hill
1600-1700hrs

Due to the strong SW>6 and the lateness of the hour it was no surprise that Soil Hill was quiet to say the least.
Lapwings are now holding territory up there whilst 3 Skylarks kept close to the deck.
A single Moorhen was on the NK pond but no joy with the Woodcock after searching all the usual hot spots.
5 Herring gulls headed >W on their usual track over Ringby Top.

Raggalds Flood held 4 Lapwings and 6 Mallard at 0700hrs this morning.
