Reet good do, Pinkies overt village.

          Just managed to get them through a gap in the rooftops
                                     Zoomed in
         45 here but not the full skein.
          As good as Ogden got, photographing BHGs

1st winter Black Headed

A good start to the morning with several Woodpigeons over >S as the sun rose along with small flocks of Fieldfare but by 0900hrs the sky clouded over bringing heavy drizzle.
A text message appeared late morning saying, geese over Northowram now, heading your way, so it was grab the camera and out in the car park just in time to get a skein of Pink Footed geese  over >NW but to the SW of me visible only for a couple of minutes before they disappeared behind the rooftops. Could,nt get to see the full skein but would guess around 80.
Thanks for the quick call from Northowram, unfortunately I did,nt have your name in my phone so perhaps you would like to let me know.

A last British summer time early evening check on Ogden proved fruitless and unbelievably bird less for this time of year. Just the usual Gt and Little Grebe, few BH gulls , 1 pr Bullfinch and a few crests and tits. Surprising to watch how many Goldcrests flew under the board walk of the small pond by passerine alley either to roost under there or looking for insects ?

Another disappointment on the way home checking Raggalds Flood to find it once again bone dry. The farmer seems to have got the drainage right this time, for him anyway.

See what tomorrow brings, don,t forget to put your clocks back !
