Raggalds Flood and Snipe field

                                    15 Snipe present in the juncus field



               1 of 3 mega distant Wheatears in the trailer park field.
                        Plenty Woodpigs displaying

Due to work, shopping and a broken down washer didnt manage to get out till 1630 hours so it was a dash up to Raggalds Flood which has an amazing amount of water since 2 days ago.
2 male Wheatear were still present but in the second field back to the left and difficult to see whilst 2 Lapwing and a Pied Wagtail were by the water.
Shelf Moor juncus field was in the mist but managed 15 mobile Snipe whilst 2m and 1 female were present but at a distance in the top field near the stables.
Up to 30 Woodpigeons were in the circus field, several up displaying.
Dont sleep in with losing an hours sleep tonight, there,s birds out there waiting to be seen.
