More non-naturalised BARNACLE GEESE


Sunday 4 July


College Lake: 1 Common Sandpiper, in additional to the usual Redshanks, Oycs and Lapwings

Sewage Lagoon: Green Sandpiper remains

Wilstone: 3 non-naturalised BARNACLE GEESE arrived 08:55 and briefly joined the Greylag Geese flock on the water between the hide and car park steps; after a while they relocated to the opposite side of the Drayton bank viewable only from the hide. They remained until evening. Also present were 6 Common Sandpipers on the bales and a Hummingbird Hawkmoth briefly investigating the Willowherbs by the old overflow (David Bilcock).
