The Ogden Scoter hunt goes on.

 This LBB stood out from the rest with a near black mantle
                                                 ( intermedius)
                                    A better count of Black Headeds

A 1900 hr check of Ogden still failed to supply me with a Common Scoter but it will,watch this space.
BH gulls gave a count of 92 with 5 Commons and 16 LBBs, one of which was an Intermedius.
No Cormorants this evening but I was a little later so they could have moved on to roost.
Otherwise 8 Canadas and post breeding Mallard numbers slowly increasing.
I thought by now with breeding out of the way that the Kingfishers would have returned to the sluice gate area but no sign as yet.
