Leeshaw/Ogden

                      Yellow Legged Herring gull at Leeshaw
           At distance on the north shore



 Fly Flatts is not the only place for late Mallard
            These were at Ogden
          Just a handful of BHGs at Ogden
               and a single LBB.


 Yesterdays plant replaced today with 2 Photinia
        Fraseri, ( Little Red Robin).
Took the easy I.D. route with this and read the label.
Remember this one Angela for when I forget
        No improvement on the Ladybirds
  But dont worry, the Parrot will get em.

With lashing rain and low misty scud clouds over Fly Flatts it was across to Leeshaw reservoir where I got around 15 minutes clear to walk the dogs and then the horizontal drizzle arrived on a strong SW>5 soon turning to lashing rain blanking out the reservoir with no signs of clearing.
                                                                                  Before this happened a quick check of the area produced the 4th Summer Yellow Legged Herring gull across on the far shore along with 3 Lbbs and 7 Black Headeds.  6 Oystercatchers were present on the NE corner shoreline whilst Canadas and Greylags were on the water.
                                            With watch abandoned it was head for home but as I got near Ogden the sky had cleared somewhat so a quick divert to check the water.
Just a handful of BHGs and a single LBB on the shoreline , 2 Cormorant on the water and 6 Mallard ducklings in the feeding corner.
Looking as if that was as good as it was going to get it was back home to plant the new additions to the garden bought earlier at Harden Garden Centre, eck ! have you seen the price of some of the plants lately.
