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.

Back to reality, Ogden evening visit

                                      BH gulls slowly starting to build
                              juv Heron always present
 Worth the trip to get this stonking adult Commongull
   in full summer plumage.

                                   Single Lesser Black Backed

 An evening trip to Ogden in the showers and drizzle did,nt find anything different with gull numbers slowly increasing with a count of 16 Black Headeds.
A couple of Willow Warblers and a Wren were still up singing along with a Song Thrush.
Star of the show and making the trip worthwhile was an adult Common gull in full summer plumage, something we rarely see in this area as summer birds are usually sub adult and by the time the adults return they are in winter plumage.
