Old Guy Road/ Ogden

                                 At least 11 Goosanders still present Ogden





Yet another afternoon of continuous heavy rain and mist on the tops so a check of Old Guy Road cricket pitch for Wheatears and the nearby Snipe field following DWs report of Snipe showing this morning. Neither species materialized, the Snipe field just holding 2 Lapwing and a pair of Mallard whilst the cricket field was void of bird life.
                                                                       On then to Ogden in pouring rain and grey skies in a hope of Whoopers but this was another species not to show.  The Goosanders were back to 11 unless some were squat under the banking somewhere whilst 4 LBB gulls were on the water.
Great, Blue and Coal Tits were active with around 30 by the feeders and several all the way on the east side as far as passerine alley along with a few Chaffinch, Robins and Dunnocks.
Hopefully this rain will stop by tomorrow.
