During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

June birders blues.

  Oxenhope res, Lbb gulls on the just submerged SW shore
               Shoreline holding on in the NW corner
                A misty Soil Hill in the background.
        NKs drake Goosander still present at Ogden.



Oxenhope Reservoir ( Members only) Windy Corner.  1530 - 1645 hrs. Murky low cloud SE>4 vis poor.
Very quiet around the water with most of the waders moved on now leaving just Redshank, Lapwing and Curlew along the limited shoreline whilst Canadas, Greylags and Mallards , all with young , were on the water.
Skies were full of Swifts and Swallows

140+ LBB gull
5 Herring gull
3 Redshank
4 Curlew
11 Lapwing
+ usual sp.

Ogden  18.45- 1930 hrs. Brightened up from earlier.

An evening dog walk  at Ogden turned out to be nothing other than that with very little about.
The water held about a dozen Mallard and surprisingly NKs drake Goosander from earlier in the week. The bird was diving constantly and seemed quite settled.
A check on passerine alley only produced a couple of Willow Warblers due to the lateness of the hour.
Hope this fog doesnt creep in for morning.

Lets hope the Ogden Goosander encourages some other birds to join him Bri.
