Goose count

Posted by Jean Roberts 
Goose count
October 20, 2019 03:44PM
Lane Ends 0700-0900

7135 Pink-footed Geese on the coordinated goose count. This is half the number that are usually present in October at Lane Ends so either still a lot to the north of us or else larger counts to the south of us. Will try to find out.

Only 27 Whooper Swans.

35 Little Egrets from the roost

Vis was poor:
Redwing - maybe 10
Siskin - 3
Skylark -2
Pied Wagtail 1
