Ogden and Mixenden Res'rs

We checked the lodge feeders and surrounding area to see if we could locate the Marsh/Willow Tit sighting from NK yesterday - without success. Plenty of Blue, Great, Coal Tits and Chaff's along with 3 Jays and 2 Great-spotted Woodpeckers and 1 Wren. No wildfowl other than 14 Canadas and the usual Mallard.
1 Dipper in the stream near the golf course club-house

Mixenden Res'r - late afternoon
22 Goosander - the drakes look stunning!
2 Cormorant
1 Sparrowhawk

Glad the Cormorant returned for you.
Bet those Goosanders are some of the roosters from Oxenhope

Good to see you got a Wren Dave. I've seem more Goldcrests than Wrens this year. Also agree the Goosander drakes look wonderful, especially in the sunlight. There were 2 on Lee Dam this morning looking great.
