Oh no , its happened again, FOG !

               As good as it got, 2 of 4 Cormorant
                            Boredom setting in.  A Tree.

Unbelievably the 7th of  9 vis mig watch Sunday mornings fogged off.
Back to Ogden which was just below the cloud base with no visibility above the tree tops and heavy drizzle turning to rain.
4 Cormorant by the water was the highlight with only 12 small gulls and no Canadas.
Passerines were limited to a few tits and the Chaffinch flock which,being the only thing to watch , gave me time to check for Siskin or Brambling but not to be.
Only 2 Goldcrests seem along with 3 Wrens.
DCB and HC were also fogged off and dropped down into Oxenhope but things there were quiet hence the 30 minute phone conversation we had to pass on the morning, great to talk to you both.
HC described the fog as, " Like the tentacles of death hugging his body ", one of the late Tony Goughs sayings.
