Humdrum Ogden Walk

I can hardly find any enthusiasm to post such was the lack of activity from dull Ogden to Mixenden starting at 1045 hrs.
WW were present throughout the entire session, being the only widespread indicator of migration.

3 Cormorant and the expected gulls: c65 BH, 5 LBB & 6/7 Common. 1 Bullfinch, few Swallow, 3 Meadow Pipit, Goldfinch.
The walk from Brookhouse track up the golf course produced only Woodpigs and from the Mixenden style just 1 Linnet. Thank providence I had to negotiate passage with a load of nice cows to relieve boredom.
Hunter Hill bottom did break the spell with a good count of c35 House Martin and a few Swallow extending to the edge of the reservoir. Here were 1 each Cormorant & LBBG with 2 BHG overhead.
