Egyptian Goose: This bird has been hanging around Salford Quay's for ages now and I finally got away from Manchester Peregrines and made it down to the Quay's.

Thanks to the legend that is Roy (volunteer on the Manchester Peregrines project) who tipped me off to the specific whereabouts of the bird.
It was brilliant to see and a nice bird that gave me very close views. I remember seeing my first Egyptian Goose at Frodsham Marsh in my early birding years but it was miles away.
