Ogden and Swalesmoor

After a productive 80 minutes doing a friends garden in, I thought I may as well now waste the same amount of time so I went to Ogden Res at 1150 hrs. It was gash: 3 WW, Gt Tit, 2 each LBBG & Cormorant, BH Gulls.

Trying to salvage some birdlife I spent an hour on Swalesmoor in a gusty SW'ly. The farmer was mowing and excavating the field below the wagtail site. Consequently a handful of Pieds were to be seen flitting about here. I walked up to the top of the track alongside the waggy field and back down. Just c10 Pieds, 1 LBBG and a couple Linnet were encountered.
Others: 1 each WW, Kestrel & House Sparrow, c7 Meadow Pipit, 4/5 Goldfinch, Caawvids.
