Ned Hill watch point

                                       Ned Hill track

        Mixenden Reservoir from Ned Hill
            Drake Mallards heading back to Soil Hill

          Looking across a misty Causeway Foot Col.

A check on the Causeway Foot Col this evening to see if yesterdays small gulls were still on the move found only 5 LBBs heading high and >W with no sign of Black Headed.
The track held Goldfinch, Linnet and Meadow Pipits whilst a family of 3 Grey Wagtails flew over the goose field.
Several Swallows and Swifts flew around the col in no particular direction and a single Lapwing headed for Soil Hill.
Raggalds Flood on the way home again found it struggling to produce even though conditions are ideal at the moment, with just a single Pied Wagtail, 2 Drake Mallards, possibly the same birds seen over Ned Hill, and a few Woodpigeons.

Bit of a slow week - maybe June will turn up trumps
