Funny sort of morning looking for geese.
Found huge numbers of whooper and mute swans between Thurnham and Cockersands.
Went round Pilling, Eagland Hill, Horse Park Lane, Fluke Hall and found one field full of greylags (OOA) and odd pink-footed here and there totaling less than 100. Decided to come home via Gulf Lane and Crimbles Lane and found at that end several fields full of thousands of pink-footed. Most strange to find them just in one place.
At Cockersands the fields were full of golden plovers, lapwings, dunlins and starlings.
Another unusual spectacle was a murmuration of a huge starling flock at 10.45 am at Sand Villa.
