A Barnie for Ogden

   The elusive Barnacle has returned to Ogden



               Just 8 Lapwing in the trailer field

Green Lane Magpie tree held 19 roosting birds.

A late afternoon check on Ogden in an icy cold NNE>5 with slight snow showers found nothing in the way of passerines although only had time to check the west bank Alders.
The water had the usual small gulls and Mallards along with 5 Canadas and a surprise visit from the Barnacle Goose which keeps moving around the area.

Raggalds Flood is once again dried up whilst Shelf Moor trailer park held 8 Lapwing and around 100 Starling.
Nothing to excite me on Green Lane but the pond opposite the bottom of Corporal Hill is worth keeping an eye on, especially over the spring period.
19 Magpies were in and around the roost tree at the Deanstones end of Green Lane whilst the surrounding fields held a few small gulls and corvids.
Clear skies tonight so hopefully a clear frosty morning tomorrow.
