Barnacle Goose

Another shot of the Barnacle Goose located with the Pink-footed Geese on the afternoon of the 11th October. A true Holme scarcity, being much rarer than the likes of Yellow-browed Warbler. Incredibly my 3rd in 6 days (having only had 2 birds in the 7 years prior to this!) in what has been a well above average autumn for this species at the observatory. Photos and words © Connor D.
