More foggy geese

Heysham Obs
c250 Pink-footed Geese were just about visible heading north-west over the office at 1015hrs

Most of this is beginning to resemble self-generated set-aside (i.e. its not been mown for ages) and the four Reed Bunting were still present today along with two Snipe. A Raven was on nearby Heysham Head

Green Woodpecker still here & singing Song Thrush

Drake American Wigeon viewable from Glasson looking towards the Conder Estuary late afternoon (on the lowish tide?). NNEW on Smew at Freeman's Pool.
