      Productive morning!

      One Tundra Bean Goose in the same field.

      A few Golden Plover and Dunlin taking advantage of the thaw in the fields.

        Information on the colour-ringed Black-tailed Godwit I saw this morning. I recorded it on 28/3/20 as well. Seems to like Norfolk in the Autumn and sunny Lancashire in the spring before it heads back to Iceland.

          The colour-ringed godwit was feeding among the geese in the fields late afternoon. Great to see its history.
          Tundra bean and L whitefront still present.

            Interestingly another cr Black-tailed Godwit also ringed at Snettisham on 1-9-19 (O-YW//W) was at Aldcliffe on 14th and 25th March last year.
