Old Guy RD / Raggalds Flood

                Swallows enjoy the cricket practice nets
                                  The well cut grass is an attraction to birds.

    A non existent Raggalds Flood but worth the occasional
               check for Yellow Wagtail.

A quick before work tour of Old Guy Rd and the Raggalds Flood
A single distant Wheatear was briefly on the wall near Micklemoss Farm before dropping over into the Roper Lane side showing full autumn plumage.
The cricket field was lively as usual with 22 Meadow Pipits, 5 Skylark, 3 Pied Wagtails with 6 juvs whilst 12 Swallows were sunning themselves on the practice nets .
6 Lesser Black Backed gulls went over >W and several Black Headeds were around the fields.
Linnet counts are well down now with just 2 being seen.
