During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

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.
