Ogden/ Ned Hill Watchpoint


                                           Usual boring Ogden photos

                                           West across Causeway Foot Col

A good start to the morning with Woodpigeons moving >S as the sun rose and keeping going till 0900hrs. Things quietened after that apart from a call fromm DCB clocking over 1000, Pinkies in various directions but none for Queensbury.
A tea time visit to Ogden was quiet with just the 3 Cormorants and usual sp.
One thing that amused me was , as I was taking photos of the Cormorant a couple walked past and she said to her husband, " Look, hes taking photos of the Penguin",  That may happen on Soil Hill but not Ogden.

The Ned Hill watchpoint was lively with small gulls in various directions and a distant Raven was passing the wind turbines, otherwise all quiet.
Thick fog forecast for morning but if not surely the Fieldfares will be arriving on mass.

Only Pelicans on Soil Hill; what you thought was a Penguin was actually a passing Nun.

Haha, words fail me! What did the husband say?

Brian Sumner . said...

Probably, "Why is that man with the camera rolling about laughing".
He actually seemed ok with her remark.

Tracy C said...

He probably wasn't listening!

Another first for Ogden then. Make way for the twitchers in the morning!

There is a Ned hill on the south island of New Zealand, from which my favourite wine derives its name; Ned Sauvignon Blanc. Ned' of course meaning 'Hill' or 'hillock.
No more beautiful than our own of course.
