Soil Hill / Raggalds Flood, pm visit

                      Duck !   Mallard low overhead
                 One of several Skylarks
                                                1 of 2 Grey Partridge
            Up to 50 Meadow Pipits and 20 Linnets mixed in.

                          Good to get the Linnets back
                                                 Raggalds Flood Pied Wagtail

A misty hill at 1630hrs with a cool E>5.

Nice to get Linnets back on the hill mixed in with a good flock of Meadow Pipits which all seemed to favour
the NE end .
Two male Wheatear were in the farm field beyond the trig point whilst 2 Grey Partridge flushed and headed down the hill.
Around 15 Skylarks were present along with 2pr Lapwings and a drake Mallard flew low overhead towards Mixenden Reservoir.

Raggalds Flood water has receded slightly today with just 2 Lapwings, 1 Pied Wagtail and a female Wheatear present.
0900hrs kick off at Leeds tomorrow so up and off early doors, may catch an early rising Red Kite.

Hope you get that early Red Kite in the morning Bri - what about the fish paste for your passing Osprey !!!

No Red Kite Dave but a Buzzard waiting for me when I got back to the garage.
Fish paste sandwiches still on the garage roof to bring down the Ospreys !
