Ogden Water Doth Deliver

After a struggle up Soil Hill, I found reserves of strength and time on my hands to check Ogden.
Once again a wader was working the N shore but this time it’s bill and legs didn’t look right for Greenshank.

To cut a long story short, I finally decided Green Sandpiper after finding a second bird and managing some below par photos.

Also present: 2 Curlew, 1 each Tufted Duck & GC Grebe. Couple Cormorant and the usual Gulls. Buzzard heard on departure.

Good to chat with BS & DJS who both got the Greens.

Soil Hill: 1 Common Snipe, 5 Skylark, several Meadow Pipit. 1 Reed Bunting ditto Moorhen. 3 WW ditto Whitethroat. Several Goldfinch and Swallows, 1 Blackbird.
