14th March 2013 – Staggering numbers of geese on the Solway…

Wow, this morning was fantastic. I really didn’t know which way to look, a sea of geese in every direction. I was completely spellbound.

So I was determined to find something amongst that lot! And I did, the bloomin’ Todd’s again, I want to find something new now! Anyway, here it is, and as you can see the views of it are getting slightly better…

I also managed to read a neck-collared Pink – TCX – I will send the record off to see where it’s been…

The leucistic Pink was also amongst them…

But frustratingly I couldn’t find a Bean Goose or Whitefront or Red-breasted, in fact the only other species I could find was a Greylag! Thought I’d save the best til last!…

See if you can spot it!

Greylag showing well!

But what a spectacle, there’s nowhere I’d rather be, immense!

Well OK, maybe on North Uist watching a Harlequin…

    Wow – it’s really good to see that the geese are doing so well. It will be interesting to hear about the life-history of TCX.
