During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Redshank for Ogden

Limited birding time today so a quick check of Ogden once again found the usual sp. with a good count of 54 Canadas and the Little Grebe still present but no sign of the Gt Crested.
Very few gulls on the shore but several mixed gulls very high, some hardly visible to the naked eye, all feeding on either high flying insects or ants.
As I walked through passerine alley a Redshank called and I just managed to see it fly low below the sky line towards Oxenhope.
                                            Only passerines were Robins, Wrens and Chaffinch.
As I was coming away a phone call from KM at Oxenhope Reservoir with a Caspian gull in his scope. Typical on a time that I could,nt get up there. Thanks for the call Keith.
