Waiting about for tradesmen today but I did get out for an hour.
A beautiful sunny day and quite warm in the sun and out of the wind.
Not a lot about considering the better weather.
3 Redwing and 2 Mistle Thrush were in fields near the small Holdsworth area copse.
A Kestrel was hovering as I went down to Oats Royd, and a Wren was flitting about.
Oats Royd was exceptionally quite with a Jay and not much else stirring.
5 Moorhen were near the pond near the park.
The usual small birds were near Bradshaw Park
I had a walk up to look at Raggalds Flood late afternoon.
Pleasing to see a large Lapwing flock in the Bonnet Fields.
I counted 180 birds with other obscured by the contours of the field.
The flood held a few Mallard.
I cleaned the Blue Tit box this aft.
1 egg remained unhatched from last years brood.
(1 egg remained from the year before as I recall).
