Another Ogden soaking

A glorious day with blue skies and sunshine in mild conditions, or that was until my birding time at 1445 hrs when the clouds moved in and the drizzle started.
By the time I arrived at Ogden the fog was down and horizontal heavy drizzle was blasting over the water on a freshening N>5 cutting visibility to half way across the water.
                                                             Around 150 small gulls were out near the centre making it impossible to sift through them in the conditions but from what I could see there was nothing special.
The usual Mallards were in the corner and a count of 28 Canadas which took off and headed towards Fly Flatts.
                A few Chaffinch and Goldfinch plus 3 Goldcrests and the Kingfisher which seems to be super glued to the usual railing down by the sluice gates.
Its looking promising for an earlier start tomorrow so hopefully the fog will keep away.
BS
