Ned Hill watch point / Ogden

                                      Plenty shoreline and gulls at Ogden
         Another pink legged LBB for JL


                                  Last sun over the pines

A real Pink Footed Goose morning with several reports of moving skeins , only bad news is I was at work.
Reports of sightings from DCB, DJS, AC and DW with Pinkies either to the west of us or heading west, hopefully the move will build by morning.
A late afternoon watch from Ned Hill watch point failed to produce any Pinkies with quiet skies.
Several Swallows were heading >S along with 2 Mistle Thrush, otherwise it was just the usual gulls heading to various roosts.  Two Kestrels and a Little Owl were present.

A last light visit to Ogden found the water level even lower with some tempting shore line and spits holding around 150 BHGs, 11 Common gulls and 34 LBBs but that was it.  Again, no Pinkies overhead, maybe tomorrow.

Just got a report from HC saying they had 4 skeins of Pinkies, plus specials , Red Breasted Merganser and Hobby over the Oxenhope watch point this a.m.
