Spent an hour down at the local patch this morning.
On scanning through the large Greylag flock I saw a familiar face. It was Pinky. He's the local resident Pink-footed Goose who has been living with the local Greylags for at least the last ten years. I hadn't seen him/her for a year or so since a visit to Manor Farm.
He is well known by birders around Milton Keynes as he travels around quite a bit.
It was quite a quiet visit as a lot of the ducks seem to have moved on, but I did see 3 Little Egret and a Black Swan. There was a Buzzard on a fence post eyeing up the feeding ducks and a Little Owl was in it's normal tree between the two rivers.
