It was lovely to see the geese are starting to arrive at Mersehead - no barnacles yet of course but we saw skeins of pink-footed geese arriving, and also saw canada geese and a small number of greylag.
Looking forward to the barnacle geese arriving!

Lovely shots, Maggy. I always look forward to this time of year for the winter birds to start arriving.

Thank you, Paul. Me too!
In reply to Maggy:
We were back down at Mersehead last week and there are many more geese and wildfowl there now - a perfect time to visit! (though it is a great place to visit all through the year)
The Barnacle geese have arrived back
As well as flocks of geese, it was great to see a flock of curlew
a beautiful male yellowhammer
