No sightings of Roe Deer, 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.

Another Ogden trip.

 

                                   4 Treecreepers present at Ogden

                                            Ogden early morn

With dense freezing fog at Queensbury and along the tops I dropped down to Ogden where it was bright and still on a light N>2 at 1 degree with some breaking sunshine.
                                                     As yesterday, around 100 Black Headed gulls were on the water along with 15 Commons and the usual Mallards whilst a walk around the waters perimeter was a little livelier with Treecreepers, Goldcrests and Tits .
                                                    Both sets of feeders were again without birds but a nice flock of around 20 Chaffinch were in the surrounding trees but no sign of Brambling as yet plus the annual winter Siskin and Redpoll flocks have failed to show so far. By the time I left at 1015 hrs the car park was heaving with lots of good season horn blowing and foul language flying, and that was just from the ladies.
                                                  Sub zero temperatures for the morning and snow in the afternoon tomorrow if the forecast turns out to be right which would be a first for this year.
