The usual counts at Buckenham and Cantley had a few good moments.
The Lesser Whitefront appears to have disappeared, not having been seen for 3 days now. Half the Taiga Bean flock has also gone awol leaving just 58 birds left, a lot of the white fronts have also left leaving 68 individuals. The goose is probably still in the local area as there have been no good westerlies with which the geese like to migrate.
Counts for today included;
2 Goldeye- Buckenham river
1 Red Necked Grebe- Cantley
1 Male Goosander- nice bird flew East down stream
58 Taiga Bean's
68 White fronts
1 Barn Owl
2 Marsh Harriers
A nice walk despite the cold wind on my face, I have quite red cheeks tonight, that's for sure.
