Raggalds Flood in the Hail, Sleet and Snow

       Plenty gull activity at the flood
     A local resident has started bread lobbing daily
  The gulls and Mallards enjoy it but anything
                     else is flushed

    Star prize for this Carrion crow
                                      Water only just holding up.

A hectic day with a 3 monthly hospital check with Lynda this morning which was once again all clear so a sigh of relief and dash back to work.
A shortened lunch break but just time to check the Raggalds Flood on the way back which held 21 Common gull and 13 Black Headed along with 7 Carrion Crow all squabbling over bread that had just been thrown from the next field by a local resident. Unfortunately this is being done on a daily basis which flushes any specials away.
The weather was atrocious with a strong to gale force SW>7 with hail, sleet and the first snow showers of winter.
See what the wind blows in this weekend.

Glad the check up went well.
(Its not often your phones off).

The flood held more gulls than Ogden Water today by the looks of it.
Have a good weekend
