Raggalds Flood back in the running.

                     Raggalds Flood filling well
  No pot of gold at the end of this rainbow
                 Just 1pr Mallard
                   Enough water to float a duck
                               Bring on the Wigeon and Teal

With no vis mig this morning in the strong to gale force wind it was a quick dash up to Raggalds Flood to check the situation at lunch time.
The water is rising well and already attracted a pair of Mallard as well as 2 Pied Wagtails and 1 Grey Wagtail.
4 Common gulls flew in as if to land but moved on again.
Foxhill at midday held 11 Common gulls and 3 Black Headed.
A good day of rain now will top up the flood nicely.

Looks like Friday is going to be the big rain day this week.

The Mallards may invite some friends around.
