Fly Flatts/ Ogden.


       Several Linnets in the Pines at Ogden which is unusual.


  Plenty Wheatears on the east banking . Fly Flatts

 2 Nice Herring gulls Ogden.      Adult, summer plumage
               Sub adult, winter plumage



                 Black Headed in 1st winter plumage.


A quick check of the water at Fly Flatts found nothing but several Wheatears along the east banking viewed from the top road.

Ogden was quiet for passerines although several Linnets in the Pines around the waters edge was unusual.
No Grebes or Tufted but 2 nice Herring gulls out on the water with 8 LBBs and around 80 small gulls, 75% BHG , 25 % Common.
I hung around hoping for the Herrings to fly to check the legs which the summer plumaged bird did revealing pink but the winter plumaged bird stuck to the water although it did,nt seem to me to have the head of a Yellow Legged.
