Wild goose chase

I headed out on a wild goose chase to see if any of the Greenland White-fronted Geese have arrived yet. A pair of Gadwall were nice to see - the first I've seen for a couple of years.
There were quite a few geese to be seen on the day with Greylags aplenty, 40 Barnacle Geese and a single Pink-foot - no sign of any White-fronts yet.
I'd started the day with a view of a WT Eagle and a couple of Fieldfare but the following day I saw quite a few Redwing and Fieldfare - too flighty for anything decent though.
