A New BHG Ring for Ogden

Yet  again Ogden Res coughs up a new leg ringed BHG. Green ring JE16 was on the right leg below the knee. The metal ring on the left leg was unreadable.

3 Teal were just about visible at the far end from the promenade. I went to investigate hoping for pictures but they had disappeared from view by the time I arrived.
Others: 6 each Blackbird, Chaffinch, Goldcrest with a couple Blue/Gt Tits thrown in.
2 Pheasant, 9 Common Gull were in the fields at Back Lane but nothing else was.

I'd been up SH at 1150 hrs. Singles: Kestrel, Little Owl, Snipe, Meadow Pipit, Dunnock.
Prior to this the Lapwing flock were in the field at corner Roper/Green Lane.
