Swales, Ogden and Mixenden area

That bitterly cold easterly persists along with mist and very fine drizzle so conditions were not good today.
Swales Moor - 4 Meadow Pipits and 2 Skylarks
Mixenden - just a few  B H Gulls and a Common Gull
Ogden - one drake Goldeneye, 5 L B B Gull's, Green Woodpecker heard, Grey Wagtail flyover >NE and a male Sparrowhawk
Stodfold (between Ogden golf course  and Mixenden Res'r) c50 Redwings looking in great plumage but they were distant and not very approachable so just a distant shot, cropped below.

Mostly just hearing the GWP's as they are pretty vocal at the moment in the right places !
