Horrendous conditions at Ogden.

Black Headed gull thinking it was on the North sea
                                      Even the ducks were sheltering in the trees
                                         Quiet on the Raggalds Flood

Atrocious  conditions at Ogden with gale force NW>7 and torrential driving rain showers throughout. One of those mornings where you think I,ll not bother but luckily with 3 dogs you,ve no choice but to get out there and once out I enjoy it anyway, whatever the weather throws at me.
Gull numbers were up with 100+ Black Headed and 25 Commons although it was hard to check them out with high waves and white horses on the water.
The woods around the circumference were quiet but managed 5 Goldcrest, 6 Coal Tits and a few Blue and Greats mainly in Alders.
A check on Raggalds Flood on the way back found 2 Common gull, 8 BH gull and 7 Lapwing.
