Ogden

             A good flock of Goldfinch with around 40
                near the car park.



                          Kingfisher in its usual spot
   A flock of 45 Lapwings in the distance crossed
               the golf course >SW
                                   15 Magpies around the info centre.

1500 hrs and Ogden was dark as night with black rolling clouds on a SW>5 but at least the fog has gone.
The water was mega quiet with 8 BH gulls and the usual Mallards whilst a few LBB gulls headed over >N towards the Oxenhope roost.
A flock of around 40 Goldfinch has built up around the car park , very noisy in the tree tops pre roost whilst 15 Magpies were in the Nuthatch tree near the info centre.
                                                        The feeders at the lodge house were cleared of food whilst the feeders at the info centre just held Great, Blue and Coal Tits, that was until a couple of nuggets found it entertaining letting their German Shepherd run round the feeding area scattering the ducks and squirrels. As my old mechanic used to say, " In every bed of roses you get a few pricks ".
                                                                    Other than that it was down to the Kingfisher by the sluice gate  and a flock of around 30 Fieldfare dropping down into the plantation to roost.
