A poor do at Ogden

In contrast to my last visit things were very quiet on the passerine scene with not a bird showing on the eastern side through passerine alley.
As I got to the Alders on the west bank 6 Siskin flew around the tree tops before dropping back down deeper in the wood whilst a flock of around 30 Goldfinch flew across the water dropping into trees at the northern end.
I came across the Chaffinch flock, now about 40 strong, but very mobile between the shore, the Willows and the Pine trees but a scan through them failed to produce anything exotic.
The water held around 30 BHGs, 2 Commons and a LBB along with 3 Cormorant.
