A reet poor do. Soil Hill/ Raggalds Flood

1600 hrs and a check on Raggalds Flood found nothing in the way of waders with just 3 Pied Wagtails, 3 Wheatear and 1pr Mallard present as well as a few Swallows over which  have suddenly become an every day sighting. With Yellow Wagtails on the move I,ll be keeping a regular check on the flood having ideal conditions for this species as long as it does,nt dry out completely. The last one seen there was 17/05/2013.
                                         Soil Hill got the usual Ouzel, Plover check to no avail producing just the usual Skylarks, Mipits, 2f Reed Buntings, Oystercatchers, Curlews and Lapwings etc. An icy cold NW>5-6 didnt help.
