Fronting up

Amazing. More Whitefronted Geese in one frame than I have everv seen in Northumberland in total! Better still they were Eurasian rather than the Greenland species we normally get at Grindon loch. ADMc counted 195 on north pool at East Chevington on Sunday. They flew in from the adjacent fields with hundreds of Pinkfeet and Greylag to join the pair of Bewicks Swans and assorted Ducks, Gulls, Waders already on the pool. The mixed flock including a single Bean Goose swam around until they had sorted themselves into rafts of like species and then they were off again. A lovely sight.

Crappy shot making it all the more difficult to spot the single Bean Goose.
