Dinnertime dash

                              Raggalds Flood coming back to life
                    Lapwings enjoying the water


                 Skylarks on the cricket pitch

          This Tawny Owl took some finding.

With a morning hospital appointment with Lynda for a much dreaded CT Scan and now a month to wait for results it was a quick check on the Raggalds Flood and Old Guy Rd on the way back to work.
The flood looks a little healthier water wise but the only birds present were 17 Lapwing and 2 Pied Wagtails.
Old Guy Rd cricket pitch held 12 Skylark, 4 Meadow Pipit and 1 Pied Wagtail.
A quick check on the Queensbury Tawny Owls after work in fading light produced 1 bird well hidden.
I was hoping to catch them out in the open before they headed off for a nights hunting  but had,nt time to hang around. Last night the garden owner reported that the 2 Owls were sat out on a branch around 1730 hrs.

Not a very pleasant way to spend a morning - hope Lynda's got over the scan Bri.

Nice Skylarks pics.

Cheers John.
Skylarks were distant and in the grass, never a good combination.
