18th & 19th February 2017

We had a choice go & join the throngs in Lincs for the Bluethroat or stick looking local!! Local won the day & we headed over to Abbey Fields on the Sat to see if the Whooper Swans were still present,no sign & to top it off got a puncture so had to drive back with the spacesaver on,meanwhile a txt from Tom Perrins telling me the Greenland White-front was showing well from the canal near Middleton Lakes just made things worse!! A quick stop at the Tyre Company & drive home was rewarded with a single Waxwing on Heath End Road on telegraph wires (A welcome Warks tick for Donna) we collected our cameras & headed off to Middleton not really expecting more than some record shots! Unexpectedly the goose flock actually walked towards where we were hiding behind the hedge giving us some cracking views 400 photos later & we were off with both Greenland White-fronted Goose & a little more distant Egyptian Goose in the bag..............

Sunday was again spent locally at Seeswood Pool where the Tundra Bean Geese x 4 were still present along with 3 Egyptian Geese & gave us our best views yet although still a very skittish flock....
