Ogden and around the locals

            Plenty Willow Warblers about
                      Robin giving it some stick

                                      Queensbury south Little Owl

With Lynda having a bad weekend it was down to an early morning hour round the locals then back to dish out the T.L.C.
A grey damp start with a cool WNW>4 at 0645 hrs when I arrived at Ogden to find nothing on the water other than the usual Mallards, now in low numbers, but pleasing to see the water level down with plenty shoreline exposed.
Several Curlews were calling over the moor and around 20 noisy LBB gulls headed over high and West.
Otherwise it was down to the usual passerines but most keeping down out of the damp wind.

Ogden,
5 Willow Warblers
2 Chiffchaffs
2 Canadas,  fly over
