And still its froze, Ogden

Some signs of starting to thaw
Black Headed
Inquisitive Squirrel

Ogden 0830-1000hrs. Strong W>5 dropping to 3 by 0900hrs. Overnight snow and freezing.
Some signs around the water now of a thaw starting with water around the fringes and some cracks appearing.
All 3 ponds are now clear of ice and the water hole on the reservoir is getting bigger.
Bird wise it was quiet with no passerines in the usual Alders. The only small birds were on the feeders being the usual Gt, Blue and Coal Tits. No Common gulls were present and only a small number of Black Headed but as always patience was rewarded when the Kingfisher called by the northern pond then skimmed low over the icy reservoir and down into the overflow not to be relocated.
Several Fieldfare , Redwing and Woodpigeons were around the Back Lane plantation area.

Fieldfare............................... 42
Redwing.................................28
Woodpig..................................78
Kingfisher...............................1
BH Gull...................................15
