√Bradshaw and Soil Hill and Ogden later

10:20 - 11:45 - Bradshaw & Soil Hill

I thought I'd take a look for Snow Bunting on Soil Hill this morning.
Taylor Lane was bottle ice in places and the wind was biting on Soil Hill top but the sun shone for a good part of the outing making it a good walking day.

From Soil Hill I went along Ned Hill Track, down Ned Hill Road, Ingham Lane and Bradshaw Lane.

Little Owl was seen at a distance, sunbathing on a fence post on Taylor Lane.

A good nosy around Soil Hill did not come up with the hoped for bird though.

A Heron left the scene and apart from a Crow or three no other birds were seen.

Just a few Gulls and Woodpigeon seen here and there during the rest of the outing.

An enjoyable saunter nonetheless - very picturesque.

Ogden 13:55 - 14:55

I had a look at Ogden after lunch.
It was very quiet on the water.
A walk up to Back Lane (where the wind chill made it bitingly cold) did not produce a lot either.


Usual Gulls and Mallards.
Robin, singing Dunnock, Pr. Pheasant, Goldfinch.

A Mistle Thrush was in the tree opposite my house when I got home.

Not many winter thrushes about yet - maybe this cold snap will bring some south.

Flu Jab day today and pool/ snooker later.

Oh .. then I'll have to decide what present to get for The wedding and what to wear... may even need a new hat..

it's, all go, here in Bradshaw you know.

Not many hot points up here mate
