A bird free afternoon (not)

..well this was the plan until very inconsiderately 6 Snow Geese turned up at East Chevington Northumberland. So I headed up and was delighted when they were still there as well as a single Pink-footed Goose and a small flock of Barnacle’s. I have attached a photo or two below. After this I went to Cresswell and saw the Scaup which were also a long awaited year tick.

This morning I went to Seaton Pond to see the Great Grey Shrike and returned on the afternoon and saw it again and it was a bit closer. Fabulous views and managed a half decent photo.

Until next time, Foghorn out!
