Ogden Watch Group
The first watch group of 2013, which means that we were chopping and moving Christmas trees that people have dumped. Its always good fun, but does mean that you will not see many birds. Having said that, you can see the birds of the reservoir, and luckily there were some birds there. The cormorant was sat on the buoy, as it seems to be so often when I come down. And there was, however, a male goldeneye on the reservoir, loitering around the duck feeding area, quite close to us on the bank. Its a nice bird to see, and another good bird at the start of the year.
