Slimbridge wanderers

Managed to get a few hours yesterday and headed up country passing the new Maiden Hall lake on the way. Loads of Pinkfeet, Whitefronts and I assume Bean Geese although everything was so far away I didn't check. I did however come across the two Bewicks Swans quite close to the Red Row Road, that's pronounced Reed Rah Rurd locally.
Quite content they were grazing away sometimes standing, sometimes sitting.
Nice looking bird. Wonder if anyone from Slimbridge has given him / her a name.

Also visited East Chevington where AC pointed out an interloper in the Pinkfoot flock. Can you find it!

Snow Goose easy to see on the ground but strangely very difficult to spot when the flock was in flight.

P.S. Apparently it's a Ross's Goose. Thanks John
