Raggalds to Mixenden

c65 Lapwing & 1 Pied Wagtail Raggalds at 0935 hrs, the former flying around.
Soil Hill was shrouded by the fog undertaker and birdless. Ogden back lane had 9 Pheasant and some Woodpigs. The res was chronic; only a Nuthatch saved my receding sanity.

Stod Fold by contrast was lively. 26 Canada, 3 Goldfinch, 1 LTT ditto Mistle Thrush. c15 Pied Wagtail, c10 Meadow Pipit, Dunnock, 4 Blackbird, 1 GSW.
A large flock of Starling had about 35 Fieldfare in among while c45 Redwing were flying around seperately. Also many Jackdaw in the wider area.
Mixenden Res sported the 3 Goldeneye, 4 Mallard and a host of small gulls.

DM reports 2 Buzzard showing well in Shibden Valley.
