Photos in the fog, Ogden.

                                           Waterlogged footpaths
                                                Gloom over the water
                A ray of sunshine, a Charm of Goldfinch appear
                                   Circling overhead.


                                      Dropping down
                                       Landing in the tree top
                        An amazing sight.
                                         Settled down

                                          Ready for roost.
         Sorry for photo quality but peering through the fog at last light.

Got back from town early with not having to call at Sainsburys due to Christmas shopping reschedule so due to another day of dense fog at Queensbury I went down to Ogden at 1430 for the last hour.The fog was nearly as thick there with visibility half way across the water and heavy drizzle but one of those perfect days for picking up a raft of Scoters or some Yellow billed swans. This was not to be and things were quiet with about 40 small gulls on the water, 75% BHG, one of which was still sporting a full summer black hood.
Passerines skulking around the edges were the usual Wrens, Dunnocks and Robins with the small flocks of Tits and bits.
Back near the visiting centre with an empty camera and gloomy face the birding god felt sorry for me and sent over a charm of around 70 Goldfinch circling overhead before coming down in a tree top ready to roost, once again the day was saved.
