Egyptian, apparantley. Not the most exciting addition to my county list, but they all count I guess! Twitched after work with Phil... Its only a couple of months since I last saw this species - in Cape Town!
A little distant from the track to the pond at Holywell, egyptian goose is considered a rare visitor in Northumberland... I'd previously seen a single bird on the Durham side of Derwent Reservoir, so it was kind of nice to get one in the county. Although I do look forward to another, better, county tick!
Not much on the pool itself, with twenty odd curlew, redshank, lapwing etc.
