Fly Flatts/ Ogden, Raggalds Flood

  Ogden, corvid after Sparrowhawk
        Heading for the trees

                                Several Chiffchaffs about
                                    Ogden, alive with frogs




                        A brief brighter period

I retract what I said yesterday about it could only get better, it got worse.
Fly Flatts had heavy horizontal drizzle carried along with a stiff SW>5 followed by fog whilst Ogden was calmer but damp and very grey.
The promenade at Ogden was alive with moving frogs counting well over 50 but unfortunately several were flattened in the road by the info centre on my return.
