      Five White-fronted Geese with Pink-feet and Greylags in field south of Freeman’s Wood – the geese were very mobile due to disturbances.

      Two Whooper Swans – one of which was colour-ringed and details have been sent to WWT.

      Great Egret in it’s regular spot (during this cold spell) on the saltmarsh.

        Hi Barrie– your two adult Whooper Swans (including the one with the yellow ring) had become three by sunset when I had a crack at counting the geese;

        Pink-footed Goose 1800 in A5 (see attached) and a further 370 on the western slopes of the drumlins (A6) also a further 38 (A3)
        Greylag 630 (A5)
        European White-fronted Goose 4 (adults A5)
        Canada Goose 2 (A5)
        Barnacle Goose 1 (A5)

          Hi Dan, Pinkfeet seemed to be dropping in throughout the morning and clearly continued during the afternoon, that’s over twice as many as there was when I left at 11.30.
