Ogden Res Redeemeth

3 Teal, 1 Shoveler, 1 drake Gadwall, 2 Little Grebe & 2 Cormorant. Also Chiffchaff & probable Blackcap heard only.

Best I could do given the hazy sunshine.

My first ever record for Gadwall at Ogden Res.
SH previously 1045 hrs. Pr Wheatear, 2 Pied & 1 Grey Wagtail, 3 House Martin, numerous Swallow, c12 Linnet, similar Meadow Pipit, 2 Skylark, Blackbird, pr Robin.
The walk from Ogden via Brookhouse to Mixenden suffered a narcoleptic fit; Little Owl called and a Meadow Pipit but today I ain't bovvered.
