This year they have only been seen at high water at Red Nab and Ocean Edge. The reason they have not been seen on the north side became clear today. They are feeding so close to the sea wall as to make them impossible to see from the normal vantage point on Knowlys Rd.
The first image below shows today's location of 3 pale-bellied Brent geese. This is just north of the play area. The birds are easily visible from the promenade, but surprising well camouflaged in this terrain.
