Old Guy Rd ,early a.m. Ogden late p.m.

             Common gulls returning to Old Guy Rd

                                  Several Pied Wagtails on the cricket pitch

                                  Still and muggy at Ogden
                                               Low light by 1930 hrs

An early morning check on Old Guy Rd cricket pitch was worthwhile with 19 Common gulls returned as well as 9 Pied Wagtails, mainly juvs, 2  Skylark and a single distant Wheatear.

A last minute dash to Ogden at 1930 hrs found it near void of birds with around 30 BHGs , 2 Gt Crested Grebe and the usual Mallards with some hirundine movement overhead.
Looks like evening birding is getting near to a close now with darkness creeping in by 2000hrs.
hope you all have a birdy weekend.

The nights are drawing in now Bri.
Especially on a dark cloudy day like today.
Have a good week-end.
(A poor weather forecast for Sat/Sun or is it!!).
