Ogden teatime sortie

                                 Robin heavily in moult

                                              Juv Grey Wagtail.



A half hour teatime visit to Ogden found it much the same as previous visits with the lack of Common Sandpiper but a newcomer in the form of a juv Gt Crested Grebe. This was reported to me by Bradshaw John who I was lucky enough to bump into in the car park.
By the time I got to the water it had either gone or was tucked away somewhere near the west shore.
The best I could manage was 1 adult and 1 juv Grey Wagtail, 1 heavily moulting Robin plus the usual gulls, geese and Mallards.
Nice to meet you John.

I think the G C G's to and fro between Ogden and Mixi this year. Swifts definately thinning out a bit now as well.
