                                   Ogden shoreline
      Blackcaps in passerine alley





A good send off for the mototcyclist killed
at Mytholmroyd when bikers used our
car park today getting ready to follow
the cortege . A moving sight.

Late afternoon and a wander around Jammy Fold for migrants followed by Taylor Lane and Roper Lane. This evenings dog walk took me to Ogden.

Jammy Fold held around 6 Willow Warblers, 1 Whitethroat, 5 Blackbirds and several Linnets.
Taylor Lane was poor other than several Meadow Pipits in the Cuckoo field.
Roper Lane watch point failed to produce Redstart in the usual area but here again several Meadow pipits were grouping ready for the off.
A group of 44 Canada geese were down near Bradshaw pond whilst a steady flow of Swallows headed >SW.

Ogden produced well this evening with the unusual sighting of around a dozen Greenfinch on the Rose Hips near passerine alley, not a common bird for Ogden.
The Rowans by the alley were alive with Gt Tits, Blue Tits, Coal Tits and at least 3 female Blackcaps along with 3 Willow Warblers.
No waders around the shoreline so just down to 3 Cormorant, c100 BH gulls and 2 LBB gulls.

A good report today from IH, BOG, of an Osprey over his patch at Keighley Moor this morning which he watched fly down over TMR and Denholme Clough until it was lost below the horizon heading for Queensbury, Nice one Ian
