During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Plenty to see at Ogden

Bullfinch, always good to see

Photogenic Robin
BH Gulls chilling out


A foggy start but this lifted by 0815 leaving clear blue skies. The wood around the perimeter path was alive with birds, mostly Tit flocks
busy feeding although I counted 38 Robins, none of which were of the continental race.
The Alders on the west bank held Bullfinch, Goldcrest, Siskin and Redpoll along with the usual tits.
A small flock of Waxwings came out of roost from the Back lane plantation and headed towards Halifax and several squadrons on Starling headed >NW.
As I got back to the car a flock of 32 Fieldfare came south over Ned Hill.
Nice to bump into Denise again who was just arriving for the second shift and CK was at Ogden then shot off to Soil Hill when I told him of the Snow Bunting.
All in all a splendid morning.

7 Goldcrest
38 Robin
14 Siskin
3 Redpoll
3m 2f Bullfinch
11 Waxwing
32 Fieldfare
128 Starling................................>NW
19 BH Gull
13 Common Gull
2 Jay
1 Sparrowhawk
5 Coal tits
+ usual sp.

The Lodge house feeders are now refilled and were busy with tits and Chaffinch

Actually, mine was the "too late" shift. Lots of people so most of the birds had withdrawn. The only thing I saw that you didn't mention was a Grey Wagtail.

Missed the Grey Wag Denise.
It was starting to get busy as I came away which soon gets rid of the birds but never mind, it was still nice to see you. Im afraid you,ll have to get out of bed a bit earlier next week but thats not easy on these cold mornings
