Pictorial view of Ogden from Sunday

                                   NW corner looking south
   Water cascade down ihto a usually covered inlet
                     Water is usually up to the trees on the left
                                          Probably as low as you,ll ever see it
                West bank, again water usually up to the bushes
                               Early morning sun
                   Water getting too distant for wildfowl photos now.
                    More shoreline than Heysham Head.
                                       Tranquil scene from the prom.

A bright start to the morning and less wind than yesterday but a substantial drop in temperature.
Woodpigeons were coming over in good numbers early on as well as a few small flocks of Fieldfare but this petered out but 0930hrs as the skies darkened.
A new species for the garage list when 3 Cormorants came over heading >S but despite steaming into the garage for the camera at record pace the small camera would,nt focus fast enough to get them before they disappeared behind the buildings.

By lunch time the rains had come, no change there, the lady next door to us says she always takes her washing in when she knows I,m on my way home from work, so a wet dog walk and no birds other than the Foxhill park Common gulls.

A couple of good reports from HC at Oxenhope this morning with a Grey Plover over and a little later on 2 Whooper Swans heading towards Ogden but although I grapevined  this I did,nt here of anyone checking them out. Thanks for the up to date reports Howard.

Yes we value the reports Howard. Many thanks.

I never thought I'd be wishing the plug should be put back in at Ogden. It may be at the stage where lack of water repels winter ducks etc.

Thats right Nigel, we,ve missed the waders so now we need the water as you say.
