We are currently in a run of poor weather. I can even hear the rain and the wind outside as I write. Going outside for the past couple of weeks has meant mainly topping up feeders and getting back in the car. Hopefully we will have something to show for our efforts in due course although the forecast is for more of the same.
At my local Reserve winter always bring in Greylag Geese. Pinkfeet Geese are more prized just as Whooper Swans are more prized than Mute. They are just wilder and more challenging, their lives more exciting and precarious. Still a flock of honking Greylags winging their way down to the loch are impressive enough so we went with what was on offer.
