Ogden in the fog

                                        1st winter drake Goldeneye





                                        Size comparison to a BHG
                                 Constantly getting grief from the gulls
                                                           Going under

Dense fog throughout at Ogden this morning with one period where it started to clear with the sun showing through.This lasted 5 minutes then the fog rolled in thicker than ever although it was pleasantly mild and calm.
Usual passerines  around the edges though in small numbers with more Goldcrests than tit flocks.
At last, a Goldeneye for Ogden with this 1st winter male, as reported by NK yesterday, but constantly being harassed with the gulls.

12 Goldcrest
3 Blue Tits
1 GT Tit
sev Wrens, Robins, Dunnocks.
1 Goldeneye
15 BH gulls
3 Common gulls
usual Mallards.
