Mixenden and Ogden area

A Sunday afternoon in the area between Ogden golf course and Mixenden Res'r turned up a few interesting birds despite the low cloud, gloom and poor light.
c60 Lapwings went high over the golf course towards Cold Edge direction but lost from view over the hill so they may have come down there or perhaps moving towards the west coast?
1 bonus bird was a Green Woodpecker at Lower Brockholes
4 bullfinch feeding in the hawthorns at the lower end of the golf course

Stodfold area produced c120 Fieldfare and 2 Redwings and 4 Moorhen on the former trout farm pond.

Mixenden Res'r was pretty dead - just 4 Mallard!

A real miserable late afternoon Dave, you did well in the conditions.
