During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Soil Hill/ Ogden


                              4 Cormorants present + 3 fly overs >E





                                                            Gt Tit
                                            1st winter LBB gull

Soil Hill was deathly quiet apart from the usual Skylarks, Linnets , Grey Partridge and Mipits although 1 late Wheatear was a good find on the Ned Hill track end.
Ogden was the same with very little sky movement and just 30+ BHGs on the water, when suddenly 4 Cormorants flew from the north end to land on the water near the float and shortly after 3 individuals flew over all >E. A Kingfisher zipping through the willows was a bonus and I think my first there this year, and a 1st winter LBB was unusual.
Lets hope for those big thrush flocks in the morning.

The Kingfisher is a bonus, seem to be getting scarcer and I have not had one this year here.
