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.

Ogden late p.m.

                                    New Ogden visitors 2 m Tufted




                                Count of 36 Canadas
                                                  Unusual good count of Goosander
 


             All todays pics Nikon P900

                2 male and 6 female. good for this site


                                       1 of 3 Nuthatch


Ogden, 1500 - 1615 hrs  Cold W>5 Some sunshine.
Some good numbers at Ogden today with 32 Canadas on the water along with yesterdays 2m 6f Goosanders. New in today were 2 m Tufted and a female Goldeneye ,which proved very elusive, along with 1 Cormorant.
Passerines were the usual Coal, Great and Blue Tits along with Robins and Dunnocks but no sign of Goldcrest.  The Kingfisher darted across the water whilst the car park trees held around 20 Goldfinch but the Brambling appear to have moved on.
                                                          Gulls on the water comprised of, 1 Herring, 3 LBB and around 20 Black Headeds, the Commons are beginning to be noticeable by their absence.

 A report this morning for yesterday from RM with a Red Kite low and circling over my works garage at 1250 hrs before drifting off >N. Typical when I,m not there.

Some decent birds there for Ogden Bri.

Nice to see the Goosanders hanging on in there.

Shame about the Red Kite, as you say, typical!!

P.s the new camera looks to be doing a good job?
Or is it the producer??
Hope you are happy with it

The pics are good if you don,t mind blue Nuthatches.

Bradshaw Rambler said...

To be honest I never noticed how blue the pictures were until you compared the two.
Hope you find a solution.
You can probably download a comprehensive instruction manual on a .PDF file via the web.
The manual that came with my bridge camera was 1 page.
Good luck

John
