Ogden, late afternoon

                      More than average Canadas, 29 present
 Gulls scrapping for a morsel, Crow joins in


                    A mish mash of gulls
  Pics of Passerine Alley for Mark Brookes who
        was asking me its whereabouts




                                    It dont get better than this
                                        And still poor on birds.

A tea time visit to Ogden found it very quiet in the cold NE>4 with very few passerines showing. The Chaffinch flock was mobile along with tit flocks but no Goldcrests or Siskin.
The water held 29 Canadas which is a good count for here along with 1 Cormorant and the usual gulls pre roost. Whilst checking Passerine Alley a Herring gull came in and landed on the water so it was a dash from east to west to check it out for a Yellow Legged , although it is late to get one now.
When I was 3 parts across the promenade and starting to flag the bird took off and headed for Oxenhope, Yellow Legged ? we,ll never know.
Otherwise all was quiet even though conditions are perfect for grazing Wigeon and geese seeing as we,ve missed the waders.

Only one report of Pinkies today from Matthew Broadbent with 15 over Scammonden p.m.
Watch for the Sunday morning fog tomorrow !!
