√Bye, bye January

No long walks today with some family visits on the cards.

Very cold today with some snow and hail showers off and on.
January seems to me to have been an extremely wet month?
I think we will be in for frost and sunny blue skies in February.

A visit to Sue's Dads brought with it a quick squint at Saville Park.
While at Ken's place a Heron flew over.
Saville Park football fields had small gulls and corvids.

A Mistle Thrush and some Starlings were lower down - no sign of the Redwings but I was only here for 5 mins.

Raggalds:

There and back (quickly in the gale) to Raggalds this aft.
A small Lapwing flock were very mobile in the Bonnet fields with Starling and small Gulls for company.
I did not eyeball any Golden Plover , in amongst,as the wind tried to blow me over.

Plenty of juice, 2 Black Headed and a Common Gull in the Flood field.
A couple of Rook were seen on the way home and the remains of a small gull by the looks of it.
Better luck tomorrow?
