Pinkie morning


                       Pink Footed Geese still on the move




                                        Several Tit flocks about
                                       Chaffinches but no Brambling
                                                     Dunnock
                          Is this your leg ringed gull Nigel
                                             1 of 2 Cormorant



Fly Flatts aborted due to thick fog and treacherous road conditions with black ice even on the main roads.
Ogden was clear but banks of fog kept rolling in over the tree tops.
Ogden  0730- 1015hrs.
At 0815 a skein of Pink Footed geese went overhead >SE but up in the mist  but shortly after a skein of 75 went over in the same direction but this time visible in clear blue skies.
Then at 0915 a third skein went over in the mist but was seen by NK at the Raggalds.
Otherwise things were quiet with the usual tit flocks etc and 2 Cormorants on the water.

Yes, that's a great shot of the Danish ringed BHG. A good Pinkie morning, early start for them too. Hope you manage the Jacks this arternoon.

Glad to see you had a decent morning Brian. Hope Soil Hill improves before sunset!

Tried hard to pick the pinkies up from Lee Mount but view a bit limited in that direction unfortunately.

The BHG with the leg ring pictured above was ringed in Denmark.
First found at Ogden and origin researched by NK.
