Ogden to Mixenden

Ogden approx 1055 hrs quiet. Little Grebe still present along with 7 Chaffinch.
The gull flock were on the western shore all bar one which was incapable of flight. The reason being it had been zero'd in by a predator; wings and feet marked it as a former BHG. 1 LBB was also hangin in the 'hood.

I'm taken aback by the skills I possess as a second tier birder; yet again I avoided the embankment Kingfisher.
5 Siskin flew over calling briefly. 2 Goldfinch in the Alders.

Stod Fold to Mixenden just produced 3 Pied & 1 Grey Wagtail, few Jackdaw & Woodpigeon plus 5 Goldfinch. The Res just held 1 LBB & a few small gulls. The woodland was in deep slumber.
