During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Ogden keeps on performing. p.m.

    Raft of Teal as usual, way out dead centre of the water


                                         Single Teal skulking in the shadows,
                                                             west bank.
                                    1 Pr Wigeon

                                                                      Teal


           Pr Wigeon ,top. lower duck unidentified, no scope.
          Looks a bit Tufted, Scaup, Ring Necked type with very light flanks
                                       drake Wigeon
                     Mallards

Ogden 1430-1530 hrs. WNW  >4,  some sun but silhouette light.

A morning visit by NK picked up Teal and Wigeon on the water, see NK blog, and by the time I arrived the water was heaving.
21 Teal were on the water inc 1 on the shore along with a pair of Wigeon all way out dead centre of the water along with 19 Canadas, 1 Little Grebe, 1 female Goldeneye and 83 Mallards which looked fresh in , these were apart from the resident corner feeding ducks.
                                                                   A single large duck was out with the Wigeon which I failed to identify having no scope with me and due to the fact that it remained sleeping throughout with its head tucked in and just very light flanks showing?.
A single Jay was present whilst the Kingfisher and Dipper were down in the sluice gates.

On a bad note, I was told at Ogden that 3 cars had been broken into during this morning in the lower car park. Seems the dirty little scumbags are targeting Ogden now.
