White Fronted Geese

Thank you to Rare Bird Alert, who paged me details today that up the road from my office where 4 White Fronted Geese, a bird i have not seen before.

So after a short car journey i found they and the Greylag they were accompanied by were not there.  Luckily being a local i new of some fishing lakes and one fish breading pond near by (300/400 yards), so after looking at the fishing lakes and i finding no birds, i headed to the breading pond on the corner of Berwick Pond Road & Little Gerpins Road.

After clambering a slighlt muddy bank in my suit :) i managed to be in prime postion to see the back end of the lag where a mixed bunch of Greylag & Canada Geese where both present. After 15 minutes of scouring birds with the heads down i was presented with sight of 4 White Fronted Geese.
