Ogden, Passerine Alley

                                    5 Cormorant present at Ogden

Passerine alley was alive tonight with passerines with the sun on the trees getting the flies moving.
1 hour stood in the alley was mind blowing with the amount of activity going on although I soon gave up the idea of photos as the birds were flitting around like fleas on a dogs back from one side of the track to the other making it hard to keep up to them even with the bins.
At last some Long Tailed Tits have moved back into the area, my first this year , also , unbelievably , my first Jay of the year.
The annual gathering of chaffinch has started with at least 30 flitting from the Willows down onto the shoreline losing themselves in the high weeds.
Just the usual small gulls etc on the water.
