Mixenden and Ogden

This afternoon had enough being inside so ventured out in the drizzle and hill fog. Thought about heading up to Fly Flatts but that would have been a waste of time looking at the fog over Hunter Hill!

Mixenden Res'r
13 Redwing flyovers with nothing on the res'r - (Goldeneye any time ! )

2 Wigeon
1 Little Grebe
1 Great Crested Grebe
c50 Mallard
The usual mix of B H and Common Gulls gradually heading off towards Thornton Moor Res'r included c15 L B B Gulls

Plenty of small birds about (in DS's and BS's passerine alley)!! with 6 Goldfinch , c20 Chaffinch , 3 Blackbirds, 16+ Great Tits, 10+ Goldcrest, 12+ Coal Tits, 12+ Blue Tit, 8 Robins, 2 Wren, 2 Dunnock, 1 Nuthatch and a Treecreeper bathing in a small stream 5 meters away was nice but could I get a photo because of dead branch in the way !
1 Sparrowhawk over
5 Siskin flyovers
c35 Redwings  over the car park >NW

Wondered when the Wigeon would start to use Ogden'
HCs 6000 Redwings must have kept going yesterday.
