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.

Another shot at Ogden p.m.

Yet another dark and dismal afternoon with mist over the tops whilst Ogden had drizzle and black as night skies.
Around 200 small gulls on the water with no big gulls present today although a few LBBs went >N overhead towards the Oxenhope roost.
The Kingfisher was down in the sluice gate area along with a Grey Wagtail whilst several BH gulls on the railings were checked for rings with no joy.
                                                          Robins are up singing last light now as well as early morning, probably like us trying to rush the spring on.
Up in the car park trees around 40 Goldfinch were pre roost collecting with a few Chaffinch mixed in.
The local Lapwings seem to have split into 2 groups now with around 70 over the Shelf Moor trailer park field on our way to Brighouse this afternoon and around 80 over Pit Lane last light.
                                                                 Plenty reports of Pink Footed geese heading >NW today but none seen over the village. Thanks for all texts and calls reporting them.

Nice one with the Kingfisher.

Dave W and Dave M any myself all had a look for it this aft.( and failed).

I think it returns there, later in the day or when the weather is poor?
