A bright but cold morning, so bike out for a return to Holywell and potential goose inspection.

An uneventful cycle there, the goose flock located a bit further away than I expected... Maybe 350 pink footers in total and no doubt one tundra bean. Started the trawl through the flock but viewing was difficult as many were standing in the ploughed mud. Picking out orange legs was to be a major challenge without my scope. The pain if distant observation was curtailed by a couple of mindless biddies who opted to walk through the gooses favoured field - lifting them all - and off they went!

At the pond the water was quiet, while the feeding station was a little busier, tree sparrow was new for the bike list.
