Dinner time dash, Raggalds Flood and the Lapwing fields

Another stunning day with the wind turned around to give a cold S>4 increasing late afternoon.
A dinner time check at the Raggalds Flood found it yet again void of birds which is strange when conditions are the same but for some reason this winter it isnt attracting anything and even the Mallards have deserted it.
The Bonnet field held 15 Lapwing and around 12 Fieldfare whilst Pit Lane held 28 Lapwing and c 100 Starling.
Two Meadow Pipits and a Skylark were on Old Guy Road cricket pitch and a surprise to see 2 Grey Partridge legging it across the field opposite.
Roper Lane plantation had a flock of around 20 Goldfinch whilst a few LBB gulls flew >N through the Causeway Foot col.
