New socks & whitefronts for Christmas...

A mid afternoon amble with Jenny saw the following highlights:

A good find came in the form of 4 European White-fronted geese (2 ads, 2 juvs) feeding amongst the 300ish greylags on Aldcliffe Marsh (1.45pm).
A little egret was nearby.

Freeman’s Pool: Scaup 1 1stw fem, 4 Shoveler, 8 Mallard, 3 wigeon, 4 Goldeneye, c.210 Canada geese, 4 Mute Swan, 2 Little Grebe, 9 Coot, 1 Snipe.

A little owl was in the Admiralty Wood.

Of note: at least 60 wigeon still on Frog Pond yesterday but none this afternoon. The roosting tawny owl was still there yesterday too.
