Ogden etc.

Two drake Goldeneye turned up on the reservoir yesterday - but they wern't there today. They looked really smart in pristine plumage. Another one on Cold Edge dams today - this time a single female. Always a welcome sight at this time of year as they prepare to spend the coming winter in he UK. Also at Cold Edge a Little Grebe on Spring Mill Dam.

Ogden has a decent flock of Chaffinches, though tricky to find at times as they forage on the weedy areas that were left high and dry with this years low water levels. A single Brambling was with them yesterday (BS). There is also a really good flock of tits and finches including Lesser Redpolls, Siskins and Goldfinch with Blue/Great /Coal and Long-tailed Tits and accompanying Goldcrests, Treecreepers and Great-spotted Woodpecker. A Chiffchaff was with them on 7th.

Exciting times at Ogden Dave, if you are lucky enough to catch the flock(s) on the circuit.
