A wintery scene at Ogden

             Good to see Goldeneye staying but very mobile

                                      First light on calm water

                                   Take off
                                              Moving to the other end

                         1 m of 8 Bullfinch

                  Cheating, an easy target

            Winter wonderland., Passerine Alley

A calm bright morning at Ogden and relatively quiet from the public but getting busy as I left with ski stick walkers.
The water was alive with small gulls but a good sift through found no white wings.
2 m and 1 f Goldeneye were present along with 1 pr Goosander and 2 Little Grebe, otherwise it was the usual Mallards and Canadas.
Several tit flocks were around the fringes as well as 8 Bullfinch and around 9 Goldcrest
