Bar-headed Goose

Following the Chiloe Wigeon earlier in the year another escaped or feral species not on the British List visited Castle Lake this morning when this Bar-headed Goose flew in and joined up with the Canada Geese flock.

Others seen this morning included 8 Wigeon, a female Goosander (pictured below), 1 Little Egret, 3 Ringed Plover, 13 Ruff (the biggest count so far), 4 Snipe, 22 Curlew, 1 Redshank and an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull.
