Hi Folks! Here’s the summary of birds seen today at Old Moor…
At Adwick Washland today, Nigel Smith reported: 7 grey heron, 1 little egret, 95 greylag goose, 190 Canada goose, 1 bean goose, 5 pink-footed goose (plus another 26 west), 15 mallard, 35 teal, 8 gadwall, 244 wigeon, 4 shelduck, 3 coot, 3 lapwing, 10 snipe and 2 buzzard. Thanks Nigel.
At Broomhill Flash, three white-fronted geese were reported early afternoon. These birds then did a disappearing act for a while but returned to the back field of Wombwell Ings around three o’clock. As far as I know, the birds were there at the end of the day. It's certainly worth checking for them first thing tomorrow.
To finish tonight’s blog, here’s a trio of geese from Gary Stones at Adwick – two greylag in the foreground, a pink-footed goose in the middle and, towards the right and at the back, the bean goose. Thanks Gary.
Until next time.
