Soil Hill/ Ogden raptor watch


                                         Distant Peregrine >E




                                                    Skylarks on the hill


                                Ogdens resident Grey Wagtail


Arrived on Soil Hill 1530hrs which turned out to be 10 minutes too late for the last of the moving Buzzards see from midday on with about 13 counted by DCB and DJS. Peregrines were also moving through and I just managed to catch one well to the north of me moving east.
On to Ogden 1630-1745hrs and still sky watching from the promenade and edge of the golf course but the job seemed to be over.
The Grey Wag was in the overflow but no Dipper whilst 1 Redwing and 4 Crossbill flew from the lodge house into the plantation.
200+ BHGs were on the water with 26 Commons and one LBB.
Didnt check the tit flock as too many people about.

Good to see you this afternoon - well at a distance!!! Good do up at Hunter Hill with a female Merlin to round things up. We dipped on the peg though but glad you picked that one up and got some shots. It does have a big crop!
