Soil Hill /Ned Hill/ Raggalds Flood

1630hrs, SW>5 with drizzle and dark skies.

The best thing about this trip was I preserved the camera battery with not using it.
A poor do all round in the windy damp conditions and a thorough search top to bottom of the hill failed to expose a Wheatear.
A f Kestrel was creating havoc skimming the ground and putting up the Skylarks and Mipits but otherwise quiet.

Soil Hill
7 Linnet
20+ Meadow Pipit
6 Skylark
1f Kestrel
4 Woodpigeons
5 Lapwing
+ usual corvids

Ned Hill
2 Pied Wagtail
Few BH gulls >S
1 distant Little Owl

Raggalds Flood
1 Lapwing

It can only get better!!
