Blimey, what a 4 days, a Richardson’s Canada Goose, a Todd’s Canada Goose, and now 2 different American Golden Plovers in the space of 3 days. Today’s adult AGP was in exactly the same field as the less well marked bird I saw 2 days ago!

Thanks to Craig and Nick today for the updates, although my little boy was less than happy that I had to abandon our pumpkins – I did the Angry Bird one – check it out!
