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!
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
