It's arguable as to whether Heaton Marsh (on the western edge of the estuary) is Aldcliffe proper.
But owing to the fact that I found two tundra bean geese grazing away at it this afternoon.... it is today.
Didn't pick out the two adults until about the tenth scan of the 700 or so pink-footed geese. Nine white-fronted geese were far more conspicuous. But after a while, the beans gave themselves up and gave great views.
Pete Marsh came down from his base on the other end of the bypass and got an eyeful too.
My camera skills are as bad as ever, and this greyish eyesore is the proof. I think that's a goose...
