Ogden

NKs hybrid duck, any comments on this?
Feeding Bullfinch

Early sun

A beautiful morning after heavy overnight freezing but some warmth in the sun. Most of last weeks ice on the reservoir has thawed apart from the northern end which was a nice suprise as I expected it to be frozen over solid. Gull numbers had increased on the water with several coming and going towards Mixenden.
LT tits were everywhere apart from in my camera view finder, wheres Denise when you want her?
Two Wigeon over >NE towards TMR was a pleasant suprise and a very mobile flock of Siskin were dodging in and out of the conifers on Ned Hill.

Re Hybrid - Pochard/Goldeneye also a possibility having looked at M Pochard F Goldeneye.
You had a good morning by any standard. I've had two birds in the back sending me morse code - Wren and Mistle Trush.

Definate oddball, its such a small bill and a lovely f Ring Necked duck supercillium. Being so tame does spoil it a bit, if it was out in the middle on its own we,d be running round like headless chickens
