Unlucky 13 Again - Brilliant

Off around Big Waters again on Sunday, very windy with a couple of showers but nothing to worry us hardy Northern souls.  Most birds were doing the right thing and keeping their heads down out of the heavy blowing South Westerly and it wasn't till we were heading back to the hide when the 13 White-fronted Geese came out of nowhere from a dip in the ground and only managed a quick snap of them before they headed off to another field but at least we knew they were still around

I picked up my first Oystercatcher of the year and also a Grey Wagtail with an odd Fieldfare and Redwing and a few Lapwing already laying claim to their favourite field.  We got back to the hide and the pond gave up a couple of Goldeneye, Teal, Canadas, Gadwall, Cormorant so here are a few pictures:

Haven't done a picture of a Robin for ages

 One of the 3 Hares that were together that we saw although if you look to the right of the one in view you can just make out another lying down







Then all of a sudden the gaggle of geese just appeared without warning and landed on the lake in front of the North Scrape and within about 10mins came closer than ever before to the main hide.












 

 




and finally, yes you've got it another video
