An iPhone photo of Taiga Been Geese, on the NENBC trip to Buckenham Marshes
The weather over the weekend remained cold and overcast, with sleety showers. We had a very successful NENBC outdoor meeting at Buckenham Marshes – seeing our target species Taiga Bean Geese almost straight away. The supporting cast included a nice ‘ring tail’ Hen Harrier and several family parties of White-front Geese. We went on, in the afternoon, to catch up with Cattle Egret, Hooded Crow, Bewick’s and Whooper Swan.
Meanwhile the Hawfinch have continued to show on and off for the steady trickle of admirers. A big ‘thank you’ to my neighbours for continuing to put up with the intrusion with such good grace.
