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.

Foggy Oggy

                                 Another bogey bird, Treecreeper
                                  2 of 4 Nuthatch
              Definitely not a photographic morning

A trip to Fly Flatts was quickly scuppered this morning with dense fog yet again up on the tops and even Ogden was dark and misty brightening mid morning as I left.
The 25 Mixenden Canada geese had ,as suspected, roosted at Ogden and left towards Mixenden at first light. Nothing unusual on the water but small passerines around the edges are starting to build up with 4 Siskin, 8 Chaffinch and several Tits and Goldcrests with still no sign of Long Tailed Tit.
                                                            Amazingly my bogey birds for last year showed up in style with 1 Treecreeper and 4 Nuthatch, the latter being 2 on the info centre feeders and 2 on the lodge house feeders. All were showing well as well as the Treecreeper but the light just made any chance of decent photos impossible.
