Christmas Goose

A four-letter word has thwarted my birding this week, so there has been no chance of looking for the Bean Geese at Lamesley until yesterday. Unfortunately there was a lack of geese all day and just 8 Greylag flew in to roost. There were however 10 Wigeon, a Gadwall and briefly the female Pintail.

Better luck this morning and the 3 Tundra Bean Geese were with Greylag on the flash pool. The Barnacle Goose was also on the main reserve.
