During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Sort this ring out Nigel, Ogden gull watch

             Herring gull still hanging around
               An early Common gull back
    Size of the Herring gull to the Mallard
      Always good to get the first Common gulls returning

   Black Headed gull with well worn single steel ring
                                             left leg
                                     2 Gt Crested Grebe
                      Juv Lesser Black Backed
             Zoomed in on ring  237,  rest unreadable


A late afternoon gull check at Ogden found it busy with gulls coming and going all the time.
Yesterdays Herring gull was still present and a surprise to see a Common gull drop in for 15 minutes before heading off >W.
A good search through the Black Headeds found another bird with a leg ring but just the single steel left leg ring which was well worn and hardly readable.
Otherwise it was down to the usual sp.
A good time now at Ogden if you,re a gull fancier with several different age and plumages to rake through.

61 BHGs
8 LBBs
1 Herring
1 Common
11 Canadas
2 Gt Crested Grebe
+ usual sp.
