Nice early Redshank Dave. Still waiting for one at Fly Flatts along with Mipits. Just the one Mipit so far but they usually just appear from nowhere overnight. Unlike autumn you dont see them arriving as they say they follow the rivers inland.
Barnacles are becoming a common sight lately.

Barnacles are a very smart looking goose - much prefer them to Canadas and Greylags !!
