Fly Flatts / Ogden

                          Plenty Long Tailed Tits at Ogden

   Nice flock of 7 Siskin
               Pics taken in poor light





                  Usual small gulls present
                                        1 Cormorant over >W
             First light at Fly Flatts
                          First and last sighting of the sun
                           Horrendous conditions



                             Lining up

0745hrs at Fly Flatts to find horrendous conditions with a near gale force wind NW>7 and ankle deep in snow with the road nearly as bad.
1 f Goldeneye on the water and a few small gulls was the full amount so off downhill to Ogden.

Ogden was calm though dull and treacherous walking, especially with 3 dogs strapped to your belt.
A nice flock of 7 Siskin were in the Alders along with the usual tit flocks whilst the whole area was alive with Long Tailed Tits.
The water held just the usual small gulls and mallard whilst a Cormorant went overhead >W.
A large Mink was down at the bottom of the overflow.

Nice one with the Siskin Bri.
Lovely photos.
Looks like Fly Flats snow is worse than Soil Hill.
