Birding in the fog, Ogden a.m.

 

                                                        1 of 6 Cormorant
                                           Very few morning big gulls  at this site .
                                         9 Commons present

                                              just 4 Herring  this being a 2 cy






                                        Unable to put a name to the front gull as yet
                                    Poor pics in the mist but very dark bird, smaller than 
                                   average LBB with very thin long legs.

                                        Will have to go on gull research for this

                                                        Heron on the north shore.

With thick fog on the tops early morn it was a divert to Ogden where it was misty over the water and heavy drizzle throughout. A very light SE>! at 13 degrees.
                                As expected, very few gulls which is usual in the morning at Ogden with the glut of gulls coming in pre roost mid afternoon. Around 70 Black Headed as well as 9 Commons, 6 LBB and 4 Herring. The smaller looking juv could well turn out to be a LBB though smaller and very long thin legs and a uniform dark plumage.
                           By 0930 the mist had come in thicker so up stumps and home.
1 Swift over Foxhill >S midday.
