Last Hinkley visit

Another bitterly cold few days brightened by the find of 14 Pink-footed Geese.

Managed to creep up a bit on them to get that identifiable photo. Although many of the birds didnt actually look that frosty above it was the tail pattern that gave them away. Particularly visible on the bird second from the left

One of only a handful of Little Egrets that have stuck around this winter

The same bird flying by later. The dark markings on the wings could be some kind of second generation Reef Heron or they could be mud picked up whilst skulking around the ditches!
