Pinkie Flyover

       Lots of noise this morning over Claremount with 50
       Pink Footed Geese flying over towards possibly Fly
       Flatts Reservoir, took a drive down to Cromwell Bottom
       Nature Reserve later in the morning but the weather was
       foggy and damp so pics that I took not too clever.

       Cromwell Bottom-:
       6 Jay, 1 Greater Spotted Woodpecker,
       1 female Reed Bunting, 8 Long Tailed Tits,
       2 Grey Heron, 1 Goldcrest, 1 Wren, 1 Song Thrush
        plenty of the regular birds about.


        12 Goldfinch, 2 Chaffinch, 1 Blue Tit,
        2 Collared Dove.


  1. Like the Song Thrush pic.Dave
    It's always special to get some pink feet.

  2. Lucky to get the Pinkies Dave, Queensbury was fogged out.

  3. I could hear them for ages and then there was a break in the fog and I spotted them, thought there was only 20+ until I counted em and it came to 50.

  4. Well done to get the links Dave. Always good to get photos for a count and identity check. Canada's could also be in the move and other rarer geese anytime now.
