Ogden Golf Course to Home

18:20 - 20:30

My first local swifts this morning, with 2 birds high over the garden as I sat reading.

I left it late for an outing, hoping that the 'not too hot' weather might improve the birdlife.


There seems to be some large size and colour differences to Meadow Pipits that I can't seem to grasp!!

Golf Course Area:

Chiffchaff, 4 Linnet, Meadow Pipit.
'Pipit in a tree'
Kestrel, Skylark, 2 Swallow

I just walked along the prom at Ogden Water and up through the car park, giving the circuit a miss this evening.

Just 4 Lesser Black-backed Gull on the water.

From Ogden to Home via Soil Hill:

4 Canada Geese with 4 young near the plantation.
2 Swallow, Whitethroat 2 Kestrel, Skylark, Meadow Pipit, Lapwing, Curlew.
Little Owl.

and somewhere along the route...


  1. Nice Deer pic John, always nice to see. I had one in the middle of the road during the week in an urban area as well.
