Highlights on the patch being the Siberian Stonechat still.
In fields Barnacle numbers doubled to 44, also 16 White-fronted Geese, 25 Brent and the usual 2 Bar Headed Geese.
Went back to work Thursday and Friday so no birding. really need to win the Lottery so i can just go birding everyday....
Yeasterday 4th back to the patch and started with an incredible 80+ Russian White-fronted Geese with small numbers still coming in off the sea. The Bar headed geese were still here and there were many more Brent Geese now.
Did the circular a couple of times Snipe and Jack Snipe were a nice surprise. 9 Black tailed Godwit were the other highlight.
During the week 21 Bean Geese visited the site but i could only find 9, Group of 5 and 4.
Only a handful of White-fronts were left on my second trip around the patch.
Finished with 3 Whooper Swans over a Firecrest by the entrance to the RSPB Car park and a Kingfisher in the ditch.
Great few days once again on patch. Green birding at its finest.
