Pom de terre

A grounded Pom certainly brightened up a dull Shell Ness this morning.
And very confiding it was too.

Probably got a bit too close but it didnt fly very far. Wasnt sure at the time the age of this bird but looking at literature later confirmed it to be a non breeding adult due to the dark uniform underwing coverts

Large Brent flock still just north of Shell Ness but couldnt see anything interesting in there this time. Despite numbers looking similar to last time the odd hybrid goose wasnt with them
