Rain stops play

The weather forecast for Saturday was absolutely awful, heavy showers and strong NE winds. 
No good for mist netting or the breeding season.
We had a trek over to Haddiscoe to see if there were any Lapwing about, lucky for us we could stay in the car and watch from there, not so good for the birds.
In between the showers we saw several sitting Lapwing but no chicks, they are later than normal.
 Dave spotted a pair of Mipits carrying food and soon found the nest with 4 pulli that were duly ringed.

Meadow Pipit pulli doing there best to hide.

Sightings included several Whimbrel, Little Egrets, Wheatear and a smart male Yellow Wagtail. 
There were also lots of Hares about, some still boxing and looking bedraggled in the rain. 
Even the cattle looked fed up !
