Ogden p.m. visit. Day of the Cormorants.

                     3 of 6 Cormorants on the deck and in the water
              Common gull amongst the Black Headed


            All seemed to be catching well
                             juv Cormorant
                                          juv LBBs with BHGs
                              1 of 11 fly overs >NE
            A strange one, Not right for Lucidus, poss juv
                 but white face and wingbars.
                Could be Leucism.

An interesting evening visit to Ogden with 6 Cormorants present with 3 on shore, 2 in the water and one on the depth float whilst another 11 moved >NE overhead in twos and threes very high.
One had strange markings with a Barnacle type coloured head, white breast and white wing bars.
The Cormorants move into Ogden annually in August usually getting up to a count of around 15.
                                                                   Gull numbers continue to increase with 13 LBB, 70+ BHG and 9 Commons. Still no Scoter this year for this location.
