white-front invasion

Finally surfaced today after a bit of a lie-in, the kids were on a day off today so we headed out to Klarningen for forty minutes before going swimming. Alright for some I guess...

Klarningen was rammed with geese, even the kids commented on the number of birds rising up in front of us as we drove up the access track. Many dropped back in on the pools and we had a chance to go through them all. Amazingly there were 84 white-fronted geese hidden in amongst the 400+ greylags, easily the biggest flock recorded in BK for some time. Also here at least 14 rossicus bean geese and a pochard (only my 15th record in BK and second this year). Nice welcome home.
