A snowy Ogden


                                   Several Lt Tit flocks
                                   This Mink didnt mind the cold water

                                  The poser Robin

A bright crisp morning with a good covering of snow and a cool N>4 which dropped to calm by 0830hrs.
About 30% of the reservoir was frozen and just held the usual Mallards and small gulls.
Tit flocks were lively with mostly Long Tailed but only 2 Goldcrests were spotted, a very poor year for them this time.
A first for me was a Mink below the bridge in and out of the water.

Mallard....................108
BH gull....................35
Common gull............16
LT tit.........................c 40
Goldcrest..................2
Mink.........................1
+ usual sp.
