Pink-footed Goose – 5th January

This morning the river was still very high and well beyond its banks. A flock of about fifty Pink-footed Geese were flying over when a low aircraft panicked them into flying in a tight bunch. Once the aircraft had gone they sorted themselves out into a stretched V again and departed to the north. A Raven was seen investigating a Carrion Crow nest on a lighting pylon on the railway land. Several Carrion Crows started to dive bomb it until it flew away. PS.
