Bucks' own Svalbard

......or Emberton Park as it is known.
A visit this morning showed that around 65 Barnacle Geese have returned to breed as they do each year. We have no idea where they disappear to in the winter. They are believed to be naturalised birds that derived from birds that escaped/were released when Weston Underwood Bird Gardens closed down in the early nineties.
Also present were 11 Goosanders of which only 3 were drakes, 5 Goldeneye which were all drakes, 3 Buzzards and a Kingfisher.
