Sunny weather syndrome. Shipley Glen then Ogden.

               Plenty shoreline at Ogden but a poor wader venue.

                2 Common Sandpipers, uncommon for Ogden

The warm sunny weather,s here and as most of you know thats my pet hate. It kills the birding and gets all the nuggets out that only appear in this sort of weather.
                                                                     Avoiding the shops this afternoon I walked with Lynda and the dogs along Shipley Glen with the camera at the ready expecting a Red Kite over which unfortunately never happened. A couple of distant Buzzards were seen along with a Green Woodpecker fly over whilst a Cuckoo was calling from near the caravan site on Baildon moor.
After throwing the ball about 100 times for Pippa she never looked like tiring so we called it a do and came home for some tea.
                                                             A bit of gardening then off to check Ogden for Scoters which found it , as I remarked earlier, full of low life with people on the shore and in the edge of the water along with dogs swimming out for sticks. Just stayed long enough to see 2 Common Sandpipers which is not a common sight here despite tons of shoreline, waders don,t like dropping down between trees. 1 LBB on the water and that was it, next visit to Ogden will be when the weather turns.
