Raggalds Flood/ Old Guy Rd

The Flood, water lowering

                                           2 Drake Mallard
                                       Old Guy Rd Wheatears





An early morning check on the Raggalds flood found 2 drake Mallards only but then a call from NK reporting a fall of Wheatear in fields off Old Guy Rd, see Nigels blog, got me dashing round there at lunch time to find 6 male and 1 female in one field. A few distant snaps taken then back loaded with big camera at 1900hrs to find them moved on and just 1 very distant male.
A single Swallow landed briefly on the overhead wires before moving off towards Roper Lane.
Thanks for the call Nigel.

Everything seems to be early this Spring so I think we could get an Old Guy Rd Whinchat within a week. However I must point out we seem to do better in Autumn for them.
