Boxing Day Bash, Ogden

                  Boxing Day sun up over Queensbury

                                       First light Ogden
                                   Sun breaking through the clouds

                                                     High Tide
 Commons and BHGs on choppy water

A first light visit to Ogden found the showers just passing over leaving a hazy sunrise and an icy cold NW>6 blasting over the water.
Just the usual small gulls and Mallards on the water but quite lively around the circumference of the water but all keeping low out of the wind and the poor light meant no pics.
                                                            Plenty blackbirds around, probably being continentals whilst Wrens seemed to be in every bush.  Two pair of Bullfinch were in Alders on the western shore where the Dipper and Kingfisher made brief appearance's.

1 Dipper
Kingfisher
3 Goldcrest
2 pr Bullfinch
14 Blackbirds
13 Wrens
8 Goldfinch
2 Coal tits.
+ usual sp.
Real shortage of Long Tailed Tits this season.
