During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Dinner Time Dash About

 From Roper Lane watch point SW
                Looking W over Ogden
                   Looking NW over Soil Hill

A much better day with the wind down to SW>5 keeping dry until after dark when the heavens really opened with 30 minutes of torrential rain.
A check on Raggalds Flood at lunch time was disappointing with just 2 Common and 1 Black Headed gulls present along with a Pied Wagtail but no waterfowl.
On to Old Guy Road where a few small gulls were in the fields and a single Skylark was on the cricket pitch.
Next stop, Roper Lane watch point where around 20 Common gulls were hanging on the wind with 6 BHGs on the hillside.
A single Cormorant was across the valley heading towards Ogden whilst a steady passage of LBB gulls headed high and >NW.
2 Meadow Pipits were down on the Redstart wall.
