drake Goosander on Inns LakeSpringwell Lake was the worst (in terms of muddiness), rather frustratingly near the end of the round walk around the lake the final section was entirely flooded over so I had to retrace my steps all the way back again. But enough of my grim mood, I had a small reward for the effort including a single Kingfisher and a Bullfinch perched in a hedge nearby. From Springwell, I walked back past the lakes in the direction of Stockers Farm, where I connected with the white morph adult Greater Snow Goose, most likely an escape. However it was a full plumaged bird and behaved much like a wild one too so was still worth some appreciation.
presumed escape Greater Snow Goose, Stocker's Farm, still a very nice bird worth some appreciation
