Wednesday 15th February 2012

 Usual time, usual place - the White-fronted Goose was refound with the Greylag Geese on the research station, a hybrid Canada x Greylag also stood out like a sore thumb.

A new addition was a drake Shoveler with 3x Teal (2 drakes) providing a supporting cast.  Loads (50+) of Common Gulls have come in over the last two days to the freshly thawed out fields.  Fieldfares were also numerous around the site.

Off to China tomorrow with work - looking forward to hearing about the Hooded Merganser touching down in East Malling/New Hythe in my absence!

I hope you get a chance to do some birding in China.

Have a good trip Adam. Hope you don't miss too many goodies back here.

You certainly like collecting various geese on your patch.
I hope your trip to China went very well, assunming you are back home.
Look forward to hearing all about it.
