Tundra Bean Goose, Greylag Goose, Pink Footed Goose
A couple of hours in the vicinity of Seamer Tip Pool and Burton Riggs Pools enabled me to gain a life tick and a year tick! I have never seen a Bean Goose so when one was reported commuting between the two above locations, I just had to go! Arriving at Seamer Tip Pool, very little was about and even less in the surrounded flooded fields. Oh dear, I thought, I hope this wont be a wild goose chase! Lets try Burton Riggs Pools and bingo! Initially I could only see Canada and Grey Lag Geese on the small pool but as I scanned two geese appeared at the left of the group and were obviously different. My first ever Tundra Bean Goose was confirmed and was forming a close swimming relationship with a Pink Footed Goose (year tick). It was great to compare the species together, I had no idea that the Bean Goose was much larger!
