Arctic Ogden

                       Canadas moving >W
                       Flock of 4 pair of Bullfinch.







                 2 Nuthatch near feeders

With an icy cold near gale force N>6 it was across to Ogden to find a bit of shelter which only happened along the eastern side.
The water was rough and quiet with a good count of 148 Mallard and a few small gulls whilst in the air 3 Canadas flew over >W towards Fly Flatts.
Passerines were thin on the ground with no Siskin or Goldcrest but the morning was rescued with a flock of 4pair Bullfinch working through bushes along the waters edge along with a couple of Goldfinch.
Two Nuthatch were near the feeders but mobile.
Raggalds Flood frozen solid.
