No wildlife sightings including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned on this blog throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.

Any sighting of birds of a sensitive nature throughout the breeding season will be omitted from the blog if I believe that in any way it could jeopardize the welfare or breeding of the species .

Ogden reservoir.

                           1 Herring gull present

      Goldcrest. Definitely not a morning for photography


      Black Headed gull with right leg steel ring
                                Left leg plastic ring missing.

With strong W>5 blowing, horizontal drizzle and mist I reluctantly headed for Ogden which was out of the wind but very dark and drizzly and even so early on a bad morning was very busy with the public. Ogden is like the Queensbury branch of the lonely hearts club where everyone wants to stop and talk to you, or maybe its me thats anti social.
                                                No sign of the Redpoll flock although I only checked the west bank as far as the Alders plus a scan of the water, 1 hour is more than enough for me at Ogden but I did get a nice little collection of bird that I rarely see  being an uplands watcher.
As I came away mid morning the car park was heaving with tempers flaring .
