Boxing Day Bash, Ogden

                                Plenty Black Headed gulls
  Best I could do in the mist and drizzle
3m Goldeneye sticking to the middle of the res.

                 Continuous flow of Herring Gulls


  The gang, back by popular request.

The weather must have thought it was Sunday when it saw me going out so it sent me the usual grey dark mist and drizzle.  Thought it must be going to come mild when the grit wagons were out last night, they don,t grit in winter weather.

Ogden proved acceptable in the conditions with firstly a fly over Gt Spotted Woodpecker followed shortly after by a Green Woodpecker, 2 rare birds for Ogden lately. Herring gulls were going over >W all the time I was there along with a few LBBs.
The water held 3 Cormorant and the welcome visit of 3 drake Goldeneye with all kept together in the centre of the water making hard work for pics in the mist.
Otherwise it was just small gulls and Mallards with the Kingfisher refusing to show.

Raggalds Flood held 52 Lapwing.
