Much of the same
Again I managed get a couple of hour out today. It was a case of staying local in case the weather improved for work. First stop was Rudyard but unfortunately a large lock had appeared on the gate so it meant getting pish wet through so opted for the safety of a hide a Tittersworth. A few Wigeon still remained from my last visit as did Teal. The long staying female Pintail was knocking around the east hide and a flyby Kingfisher was very welcome. A few cups of seed in the feeders & table Id put up attracted the normal bunch of scavengers although Willow Tit came in for a rush a grab a couple of times. I decided have a dabble up on the west moors while the rain had abated not really much going on, a few Ravens, Mipits and Lapwing. Sparrow Hawk boat loads of Kestrels and couple of Buzzards were all the raptors I could muster.
