African Skimmer Cameroon Apr 2018

10 December, 2014

Very mild and bright this without a hint of wind early morning, 4 Chiffchaff and 4 Goldcrest with the Tit flock around Atherington pools this morning, also 1 Sparrowhawk, 3 Stonechat, and 12 Meadow Pipit. Offshore, 2w Red-throated Diver, 5w Great-crested Grebe, 3e Red-breasted Merganser, 4w Curlew and a Grey Goose of unknown origin amongst the c. 1000 Brent Geese this morning, my impression of the bird is that it is a 1st year White-fronted Goose, any comments welcome.

Good numbers of Brent Geese Climping
