Soil Hill /Ned Hill/ Raggalds Flood

1630hrs, SW>5 with drizzle and dark skies.

The best thing about this trip was I preserved the camera battery with not using it.
A poor do all round in the windy damp conditions and a thorough search top to bottom of the hill failed to expose a Wheatear.
A f Kestrel was creating havoc skimming the ground and putting up the Skylarks and Mipits but otherwise quiet.
