We were hoping to see the long staying Snow Goose and Red-breasted Goose that has been frequenting the fields around Nateby and Pilling.
I took solace in the fact it was a stunning day, if a little cold and we got some cracking views of some really nice White Fronts.
We had a total of six white fronts in a field and several hundred pink-feet in the surrounding fields, however it was stated that there are less now then there had been.
Greylag Goose: Although there was no sign of the Snow Goose, which is probably an escapee anyway there were plenty of Greylag, one with a neck ring 'PZT'.
Black Redstart: It was also good to catch up with the long staying Black Redstart that has taken up residence in one of the most popular wintering Black Redstarts sites, at Knott End, Pilling.
Not to worry as I'm sure the Red-breasted Goose is still in the area and the Snow Goose was reported back in its favored field so tomorrow I will make the most of the sunshine and head out again on another wild goose chase.
