Unfinished Business

Friday 16th January

News that the White fronted Goose had been seen again at Brandon either just before or just after my first visit had me chasing back to Brandon Marsh next morning. I'd seen a small flock of Greylags fly in to East Marsh but there clearly had to be more Greylags around, so an early morning more thorough search was needed. Using considerable field craft, finely honed from years of birding with Tom Perrins I found the main flock and the White fronted Goose near the Golf course and after sharing a coffee with the dulcet tones of Paul Doherty it was a dash back for an appointment at the dentist and out again to the Tame valley for a couple of hours late afternoon birding.
