Foggy Oggy

               Fog lifting above the plantation, Ogden.
                                           5 Cormorants present

                                  A good count of 15 Common gulls

Dense fog up here in the gods this morning so it was a drop down to Ogden which was just below the cloud base but very drizzly and grey.
                                                     The morning started off quiet and my hopes of Scoter were soon dashed with nothing being brought down in the fog. A record count of 78 Canadas were on the cobbles below the promenade but soon left noisily heading towards Mixenden.
5 Cormorant were on the water along with c60 Black Headed gulls and a decent count of 15 Commons.
                                                      As I walked through passerine alley a flock of around 20 passerines flew out of the Willows across the track and into the Pines and Rowens hanging about briefly before disappearing into the deeper trees. I counted at least 4 Spotted Flycatchers and 2 Blackcaps, the rest being Gt and Blue Tits along with a couple of Willow Warblers.
