Soil Hill & Ogden

45 Lapwing on Raggalds sports field at 0935 hrs, nothing on the flood. Was up Soil Hill about 15 mins later when the Lapwing flock followed me, heading up the eastern side of the hill. 8 House Sparrows in Perseverance Rd, a single Lapwing & 4 Skylark doin the boogie woogie on the hill top also 2 Common gulls.
Ogden brought tears to the eyes: small gulls, 4 LTT, 2 Robin.
In desperation down to Oats Royd to get just: 1 each of Kestrel, Moorhen, Grey Wagtail. 5 Mallard, 3 tame Geese & couple Goldfinch, small gulls in flight.
