Ogden, a.m.

                         Cormorant over high and >E

            First Ogden Goldeneye of the season
   Record shots from promenade to north shoreline 600mm.

A hectic start to the morning with Woodpigeons piling over both >S and >E. Some of the flocks were very high and fast moving . Approx 300 >S and 100 >E.  Also 1 Cormorant very high and >E.
                                                              Otherwise things were quiet with a circuit of the water just producing a few Chaffinch, 3 Goldcrests and several Wrens.
Luckily as I was doing a Kingfisher check and sky watching from the promenade I bumped into DF who had just spotted a female Goldeneye at the north end of the water but we were unable to re locate it. After Dave left I spent 10 minutes scanning the water and finally came across it right at the north end of the water working its way along the edge of the shoreline but this ones a male so obviously a pair present.
