Curlews moving in, report from Ogden

                  Moon going down this morning before work

                                       Hanging round the feeders

              Still plenty drifts around Foxhill
                                            A snowy, frozen park

Slightly milder today after a heavy but fine snow storm at 0530hrs this morning.
Some thawing took place midday in the sunshine but started to freeze again by 1500 hrs in a cold N>4.
A customer report today of a Curlew low and calling over Ogden this morning >W as they were walking their dog around the water.
Also the Mixenden couple that report to me confirmed the disappearance of the Great Northern Diver, I wonder where it is by now?
LBB gulls are now becoming a common sight each day usually moving >SW or directly >N.
Otherwise an uneventful day but walked home in near daylight at 1715 hrs which is a step forward.

The Curlew is good news Bri.
Hope this frost goes soon, so they have somewhere to feed up here!
