In amongst the passerines, Ogden

            Still a few Willow Warblers left

                  Siskins enjoying the Alders



    This cracking male refused to show itself

A late afternoon check of the water at Ogden produced nothing other than the usual so it was on to passerine alley to concentrate on the tit flock.
I soon found myself surrounded with birds but very mobile moving from tree to tree and very hard to get on to. Apart from the usual 4 tit species at least 3 Willow Warblers were present along with Goldcrests, Blackcaps, Chaffinch, Goldfinch and up in the Alders were around 15 Siskins busy feeding in amongst the Goldfinch. 2 Redpoll came into view before dropping back into the pines.
A real hectic hour.
