Shelduck for Ogden

                                                Out in the gloom
      Fog lifts, birds away >SW down Calder Valley

A nice surprise at Ogden this morning with 3 Shelduck on the water in thick fog.
As soon as the fog lifted so did the birds flying a full circuit then off >SW down the Calder Valley.
A site first for me, any more records of Shelduck for Ogden ?
Also present was an ad Cormorant in breeding plumage and a male Goldeneye.
