Bean Goose birding break

Woke up with some very stiff joins today - all that tomfoolery on the island yesterday doesn't 'arf make my back ache! No birding before work.

Ended up at home briefly at lunchtime. Saw at least five Bramblings in the willow tree. On my way back in to work found c.70 Golden Plovers near Beeston.

In an effort to not have a completely wasted birding day, I went to look for the Bean Geese in the evening. Eventually all four flew in, presumably from Southill Lake, at around 6pm. The two juvs now look very like their parents.
