Ogden, pm

              Plenty Meadow pipits on the edge of the moor
                        but no Ring Ouzels as yet.

                                    Goosanders down to 5 this afternoon


       Moorhen, an uncommon sp. at Ogden
     Long Tailed Tits at last in passerine alley.

 1 of the drake Tufted seems to have made
         Ogden its home.
           


With little time and skies too hazy for any sky watching it was off to Ogden at 1500 hrs to see what was new. Blue skies above and sunshine on a slight E>3 failed to bring any Phylloscopus to passerine alley so had to make do with 8 Long Tailed Tits very mobile moving through the Willows, a species thats been very rare here over the winter which is unusual. Otherwise it was down to Blue, Great and Coal Tits + the usual sp.
                                       The water was down to 5 Goosander and an Ogden rarity, Moorhen, along with 2 LBB gulls , 1 Black Headed gull , 1 drake Tufted and the usual Mallards.
 The Kingfishers have been absent some time now moving away to breed as they have done in previous years along with the Dippers.
All quiet on reports and grapevine messages today but that could just be a Monday thing.

We had a buzzard low over the garden on Sunday which is only the second I have seen here. Also a couple of bramblings on Monday,prior to this we have only seen one all winter despite the flock in Queensbury.
