Beanz meanze geeze.....

2 Bean Geese went south past Whitburn Obs yesterday morning and the goose theme continued today with Pinks and Canada's south. Its been a quiet couple of days but we had a few more birds of note today after yesterdays no blog. Hoggie and co joined me late on and he called a cracking Long tailed Duck, then as i was about to leave the Pink feet started to move. I hope they got lots more than the 2 skeins i saw but it was sea watch over for me and back tomorrow eyes rested and fully refreshed
This is what we saw in order of appearance
