Arrived at Raggalds approx 1130 hrs to find both flood and sports field sporting nowt. Soil hill can also be credited with the same result apart from a distant birder that turned out to be one DJS.
Across the road from Coal Lane I was pleased to find my first local Fieldfare of the year; c15 birds being present. Also here was 1 LBBG with only small gulls on the water down below.
I decided to have a crack 'pon the track nearby and it's rather fortunate that I did. A Little Owl was blasting away and then I turned around to see this cracker putting on a show.
There was even a supporting act after I decided to head for home because another tick for the annual species list turned up. 4 Siskin flew out of the conifers and had a sortie, calling loudly before making off to another part of the plantation.
Other: Stock Dove, Woodpigs, 2 Chaffinch. Blue & Gt Tit.
