Snow Goose. Ahem.

I was back working on Teesside a mere stones throw from Saltholme where I have been grabbing my lunch. As such it would have been rude not to have cast an eye over this GENUINE ARCTIC VAGRANT. I hadnt seen Snow Goose until now and whilst not the best credentials I dont really give a monkeys about this species and it was with an obvious carrier species. Well if your in the states that is.

I am wild. Fuming.

I also found the Surf Scoter photos from Filey. They were not good.

From the side. But mostly from the brigg.
I also found a Black Redstart at South Landing whilst rock pooling with the kids. Wicked!
