Busy start, vis mig , quiet finish, Ogden

          Woodpigs on the move this a.m.

                 Ogden Little Grebe at distance
 Problem now is the water is so far away from the track
                                          Ogden pond

                Long staying Tufted

                      Little Grebe badly silhouetted
                                        Gone under
 Fall of Blackbirds, all female.

A decent vis mig this morning with a healthy move of Woodpigs, Mipits, Thrushes and Finches which continued until around 0930 when things quietened down.

An early evening visit to Ogden only produced the usual apart from a fall of female Blackbirds from this mornings thrush movement.

Thanks to all this a.m. for text messages reporting skeins of Pink Footed Geese on the move. My phone was on fire but unfortunately all the Pinkies avoided Queensbury, the nearest being 73 over Shelf.

A big BHG count at Ogden Bri?
I guess we are in for a lot more BHG over the next few months?

Hi Brian, I think I saw 11 snipe flying near the trailer park field this afternoon, they went off across Green Lane way.

You heard of any recent sightings there?

Have,nt checked it lately Tracy whilst it was overgrown but will have to get down there soon. Back end of the month and November is usually the best time.
Thanks for that.
