Pushing my luck, Ogden

                                           Back down to 3 Cormorants
                          Plenty Black Headeds  to sift through
                                              .
                                         BHG showing leg ring

                                                   J9M4  to check up on

                                      Soon we,ll have a Med gull here !!!

Unfortunately by the time I arrived at Ogden, 1530 hrs, we,d run out of rain and I was left with sunshine and bright skies which is not what I ordered.
                                                             As expected, no sign of the Little Egret strengthening my thoughts of it being a passage bird brought down by the storm rather than a local bird doing the rounds. BHG numbers are increasing daily widening the chances of a Med gull whilst LBB gulls seem happy to use the shoreline.
                                                 One BHG had a green leg ring J9M4 which is not a code I,ve had before so will have to investigate further on that one.
Nothing else of note and no sign of returning Kingfishers to the sluice gate area as yet.

The BHG is another Norwegian ringed bird.
