Limited time today with Lyndas 3 monthly hospital check which went ok so an hour at Ogden pm to find passerine alley quiet in the WNW> 5 keeping the insects at bay.About 15 Chaffinch were up and down from the Willows onto the shoreline.
JL reported a Little Grebe earlier today and this evening 2 were present along with a drake Tufted which is possibly the usual visitor. The Grebes kept at distance in the far NW corner and were diving continuously.
Around 80 BH gulls, 4 LBBs and 8 Common were present along with 5 Cormorant, 1 being a juv.

A text from KM this evening reporting a different Greenshank at Oxenhope reservoir with coloured leg rings. Thanks for that Keith.

Great to get Little Grebe back - hope it hangs about for
a while.
