A rain check on Raggalds Flood

                                        The Raggalds Flood still dried out

After a full morning at Leeds and a busy afternoon at work birding had to take a back seat, although after todays torrential rain showers I thought it was worth a quick check on the state of play at the Raggalds Flood after tea.
Surprisingly no water had held on the ground although the area was well muddy so another few good showers should start to make an impression.
Three Pied Wagtail were present along with a Grey Wagtail so we only need the Yellow now for a full flush.
The Raggalds football pitch held the unusual sighting at this time of year of 2 Common gulls.

Only 6 more radiation trips to Leeds now and just in time too, poor Lynda looks like she,s had a month in the sun, she,s as red as a Turkeycock and burn to a crisp.

Interesting with the Common Gulls Bri.
I bet you are both ready for respite from the hospital trips.
