Boxing Day bash, part 2. Mixenden

           2 Female Goldeneye

    GND still giving me the run around




 Raggalds Flood, amazing how they all face the same way exactly.

An afternoon dash to Mixenden knowing full well that the Shelduck would have gone by now, very short stayers in past experience but worth a try.
As usual I arrived to grey cloud and drizzle but only lightly and calm.
No Shelduck but 2 female Goldeneye still present but left >W shortly after I arrived.
The Gt Nth Diver was doing its dodge the camera bit even though at one point I was laid on the soggy wet banking and each time it dived I got a bit closer but it was always one move ahead of me obviously hearing me moving along the banking the same as fish do picking up the vibrations.
I think one couple with a dog thought I,d been washed up or blind drunk!

Raggalds Flood just held 59 Lapwing with the water receding fast now.
