Dinner time Dash

                                    An active Raggalds Flood

                               The flood and scenic view to the east beyond


                                                 Foxhill Common gull


                                                         YUK !
            Meanwhile, back at the local Tawny Owl roost

A blustery day starting with heavy rain then bright and breezy.

RaggaldsFlood was very active with 9 Common gulls and 6 Black Headed along with 2 Pied Wagtails and a single Mallard. No sign of the resident Lapwings.
Quiet skies off Roper Lane with just 5 Canada geese on the Bradshaw pond. Very blustery on at the watch point and difficult to hold the bins steady.
Old Guy Rd had a scattering of small gulls and corvids as well as 1 Pied Wagtail on the muck pile and 2 Mistle Thrush in the Grey Partridge field.
The local Tawny owl garden held 1 owl which was very difficult to find in the thick foliage and the wind blowing. No sign of the second bird and nothing in the way of pellets meaning they have possibly been using a second roost sight over winter. Soon they,ll be moving off for the summer to their breeding area.
