Soggy Oggy

                                  A murky grey Ogden

                                        Just below the cloud base
  Out in the middle. 2 Gt Crested Grebe 1f Tufted
                                        Heron down in the overflow


          The last remaining Cormorant.

                                        Posing for the camera

Two things I love about Bank Holidays are , an extra day off work, and the guarantee of the kind of birding weather that I like.
Queensbury late afternoon was in thick fog but Ogden was just below the cloud base apart from the tree tops with a heavy drizzle and slight ESE>3, ideal, bring em down, weather.
As suspected from yesterdays Cormorant move, viewed from Soil Hill, all but 1 Cormorant had moved on, including all those from Leeshaw from this mornings visit.
Several Swallows were moving over the water >SW whilst the 2 Gt Crested Grebes and single female Tufted were heads down in the middle of the water,,
A Common Sandpiper called as it flew across the NE corner but was lost in the mist so uncertain as to whether it landed or carried on >NE.
Otherwise it was down to Mallards, small gulls and the usual sp.
