Ogden, late pm.

The worst Teal photos ever.

      Photos taken in fast fading light and out of range




A mid afternoon grapevine message from Pete Smith reported 5m 1 f Teal on Ogden.
My planned visit there did,nt materialize until 1630 hrs by which time the night clouds were already closing in making the water a silhouette image.
I soon picked out the 6 Teal slap bang in the middle as always then coming ashore on the east side.
Photography is near impossible here now with the water so low everything on it is very distant.
Even when the Teal came onto the banking the level is so low they were even then out of range.
Never the less, a nice find and showing that a bit of movement is going on.  All quiet otherwise.

Nice to talk to DCB at the garage this morning who was out checking woodland areas for grounded Fieldfare and Redwing.
If anyone finds good numbers of  grounded Fieldfare or Redwing in trees or fields could they please let me know so I can pass it on to Dave for his records.

Hey up Bri.
5 more Teal than yesterday things are on the up!
Photo's look like Teal as well! - not easy to get a decent photo in the fading light.

Good do.

Good luck tomorrow.
