No wildlife sightings including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned on this blog throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals. BS.

Ogden, evening visit

                           Heron out in the open
   The black dots are flies, not a mucky lens.

                         The long staying Goosander
       Odd time of year to get 3 Black Headeds

                            Willow Warblers collecting flies


With a good report from NK for Ogden, see his blog, and specs of rain starting I thought conditions could be ideal for Tern passage this evening but as I arrived there at1900 hrs unfortunately the rain never transpired and I was left with a dry muggy evening surrounded by thousands of flies.
NKs Tufteds and Oystercatchers had left, leaving me with the long staying Goosander and a Heron along with a couple of Willow Warblers and the odd sighting for here of 3 Black Headed gulls which seemed odd for June although all 3 were 1st summer non breeders.
Plenty shoreline at the moment so hopefully it will stay ready for the returning waders in a couple of months time.
