BREEDING SEASON EXCLUSIONS.

As of now through the duration of the breeding season all schedule one birds , red status birds and birds of a sensitive nature to this area will be omitted from the blog or reported as undisclosed site due to the widespread persecution of nesting birds by unscrupulous parties including game keepers and egg collectors.
Any of the above species that are obviously on passage through the area will be reported as normal.
This also applies to wildlife such as Roe Deer, Badger and Hares which are badly under threat from poaching and long dogging in the area at present and unfortunately this exclusion of wildlife will have to continue throughout the year.
Just another sign of the times.

Ogden p.m. visit

Amazing how one day the water is full of recordable wildfowl and the next day they are gone.
Lucky that NK picked them up otherwise they would have gone through undetected, one good reason why we need more active birders in the area.
Today the water just held 3 Cormorant, around 80 mixed gulls and 2 Little Grebe.
A good search around passerine alley for DJSs tit flock found nothing so as a last resort I walked around to the western side to check the Alders and there they were, a flock of around 40 birds but very mobile moving north along the trees on the waters edge. No chance of photos at the speed they were moving and dark conditions under the canopy.
The birds comprised of at least 5 Siskin, 4 Goldcrests, 2 Willow Warblers and a host of Blue, Great, Long Tailed and Coal tits.
So once again Ogden proved its worth for autumn.
