Raggalds to Ogden

c85 Lapwing on Raggalds sports field and a few small gulls, several Starling also present.
SH 1100 hrs really quiet. Small gulls, 1 Moorhen & c20 Lapwing.

Ogden Res: 9 Redwing, 1 each GSW,  Fieldfare &  Nuthatch, the latter my first in a while. It was fascinating to see 3 Wren & 2 Dunnock at close quarters creating a noisy assault on the ears. Tweren't me that was the object of their ire, rather a Weasel that was creeping alongside the pathside undergrowth.

The Kingfisher was whizzing up and down the embankment overflow channel.
Other birds:  3/4 Siskin, 10 Pheasant, c7 Goldcrest, 2 Coal Tit, 1 Chaffinch, ditto LBBG, c11 Common Gull, BHGs.

c20 Goldfinch, 4 Redwing & a horde of Starling were  at Blind Lane.
