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.

A picturesque trip around Ogden.

No birding today due to grand daughter duties so just a few pictures showing the beauty of Ogden.

         The sluice gates, Kingfisher country
                                           From the SW corner
                                              Starting point of the west track
                                             Western shoreline
                     The Alders, west track
                                    Firecrest alley, west track
                                             Dipper Dyke, north end
                                          Northern track
                                 Looking south over the water
                                      Parakeet pond
                            The Beach, eastern shoreline.
                                 Passerine alley watch point
                                         Passerine alley, east track
                     Easier to watch now with leaves down.

Quiet skies again this morning with visible migration drawing to a close at the end of another season.
Still chance of a big Fieldfare day and Woodpigeons should pile through when the weather gives them chance,
