Ogden to Mixenden

Inspired by a single WW calling from the one tree behind the Qnsbry Co-op car park plus the good weather, I thought I'd check out the migration status.
Ogden Res 0950 hrs. 7 LBB, 6 Common & c36 BH Gulls, 2 Swallow. The waterside was so lacking I went into the woods skirting the track upto Withens.
1 for certain Spotted Flycatcher, mebbe 2. c5 WW, 1 Nuthatch, couple Goldcrest, few Tits.

The walk across the golf course was uneventful as was the section to Mixenden Res. Few Goldfinch, 1 each Pheasant & Reed Bunting, 4/5 Meadow Pipit, c30 Linnet, 4 House Martin, c20 Swallows.
The water didn't have a bird on or over it. Grey Wagtail, Green Woodpecker, Jay, House Martin, all singles.
