Hard work at Ogden

1st winter Common Gull

Carrion Crow

Ogden Calm and cold. Full cloud cover. 0800-1000hrs

Very quiet this morning with still no sign of big gulls over and very few passerines, even the Lt tit flocks have disappeared.

A Gt Spotted Wdpecker was in trees by the lodge house and several Fieldfare were in fields along Soil Hill.
