Three local birders save the day.

With torrential rain this morning followed by fog it was lunch time before the weather sorted itself out leaving a bright clear afternoon with the strong W>5 dropping to calm.

                                      JL was on the late morning Ogden trek getting a good soaking before improving weather dried him out. John found a drake Tufted back at Ogden, see his report, and several passerines. We,ll see how dedicated John is when the Ogden bacon banjo cafe closes for the winter. Well done John for getting out there.

With my intentions of checking Raggalds Flood at lunch time scuppered due to pressures of work I was pleased when NK volunteered to do the job which he did in style finding the female Teal still present and a bonus of 5 Wigeon on Soil Hill. Once again showing the merits of dedication to your own area, thanks for that Nigel. See NKs blog report

Meanwhile HC had moved up to his Oxenhope watch point lunch time as the skies cleared and clocked over 700 Fieldfare >S and >SW as the afternoon went on, several of these birds being bounce backs or dropping down into trees. Thanks for the texts and calls Howard.

So with these 3 dedicated local birders all the north of our area, and beyond , was covered , reported and now down on record. Well done lads, you,re a credit to local birding.

Bad luck with the dinner time dash(or lack there of) Bri.
Hope the weekend fills your camera with a few goodies.
