         Wheatears return in autumn plumage
                                    Last few Spotted Flycatchers hanging on
                                        Greenshank at Oxenhope

     Common gulls return starting to show speckled
           head, autumn plumage.
     Wheatears on Old Guy Rd cricket pitch
          Willow Warblers dispersing
                                       3 Common Scoters, Ogden

  Much to the dislike of a juv Gt Crested Grebe

    Hungry Cormorants return after Yorkshire trout, Leeshaw.








             Poor pics but pouring down

            Cormorants invade Ogden 11 present.

A day of  sunshine and showers with very little activity and no time for after work birding.
