Another Local Slog

Took advantage of the dry day to discover, at 1130 hrs that both Raggalds sites were birdless as was Taylor Lane with just a pr Mistle Thrush seen.
Soil Hill had 6 singing Skylark and although I went to check on the Little Owls I didn't see them. Ogden Res wasn't up to much, the only addition being 4 Canada Geese, one of which did the belly up leg kicking display.

Passerines were at a premium, with yet more emptiness discovered on a trek to Giants Tooth. I did encounter c8 Goldcrest and a very active Green Woodpecker along with 3 Robin, 2 Blackbird and a few Goldfinch.
A well known character DJS turned up and we were entertained by another character:

Not a Little Egret, just crap photography.
