Geese gathering.

This was taken in late August when on a brief early morning stroll around Epsom Great Pond I counted around 150 Canada Geese that had gathered together but in the weeks that followed I have hardly seen anything on this inland water.



We are off to Norfolk with four friends this morning and hope to see many, many more geese (Pink-footed etc) that have flown in from the far north to spend the winter in a warmer location. Just praying for a few days of calm, dry weather so that the camera might come out of its bag!

So...bye for now...I won't be posting while we are away but will eventually catch up with you all when we return. Hope everyone has a wildlife full week.   FAB

  4. That's a nice reminder of greener days! Enjoy Norfolk (although I must admit it doesn't look as though you'll get your calm, dry weather, sadly).

  8. I'm back, and you're off - but I have to check in on the Canada Geese - they are unusual in your neighborhood, are they not? If you need more, I know lots of people who would send some more. Good travels.

  9. Hi "Early Birders". Just catching up with you all (very slowly) after our Norfolk trip.

    Tina, Kelly, Steve B, Keith & Mona. Birds were difficult to locate & photograph in the high winds but I do have one or two to share.

    Susan & Chris P. We have plenty of Canada Geese over here so don't need any more!

    Penny. You were dead right.

    Chris. Many thanks, I'll drop by very soon to catch up with you.
