Ogden in the Rain, p.m. visit

                                          A grey wet Ogden
                                                Rain coming over the Withens
                                A cloudy Mixenden reservoir.

A late afternoon visit to Ogden in a hope that the torrential showers would have dropped something in but instead it caused an adverse effect with the area deserted of bird life.
The golf course was waterlogged with no birds in sight other than Swallows feeding and a few Woodpigeons over.
The reservoir held 1 Black Headed gull and 1 LBB gull but these soon left leaving about 2 dozen Mallard and several feeding Swallows. With no sign of the Spotted Flycatchers and the rain beating down it was time to up stumps and head back to the ranch.
A drive around Corporal Hill / Green Lane on the way back found just a few small gulls in the fields.
Hope that dreaded fog keeps away from Fly Flatts in the morning.

I guess it will be foggy in the morning up there but you might be lucky and cop a skua lost in the mist - now that would be a nice one! Some reports from inland sites this week.
