Ogden

                                           Ad male Goldeneye
                                              Still waters

                                          Dipper country

With Fly Flatts deep in the fog yet again this morning it was down to Ogden just below the cloud base with dull grey skies but very calm and frosty.
Passerines were very scarce with no Goldcrests or tit flocks, just a few Coal, Great and Blue around the feeders. The 1st year male Goldeneye had left and been replaced with a cracking adult male which was very timid flying around the water with any slight disturbance . Otherwise it was the usual Mallards plus 2 Canada geese which is a bit unusual for this time of year and these left just after first light.
2 pr of Bullfinch were flitting about in the Alders and 2 Siskin flew over the visitor centre.
Raggalds flood was frozen over with just 3 BHGs and a Common gull present.

Well done for giving it a go this morning Bri - snow on the way! Never know it might fetch something in?
