When I arrived at Martin Mere today I visited the Focus bins shop and the helpful man in there told me that about 7000 Pink Footed and Greylag Geese had arrived for the Winter. However, alot more are still expected, so I'm back again in October.
When they all took off in a group it looked incredibe. This is just half of a half of how many Geese there were in the air.
You can always see how big and muscular their wings are when they have a standing flap.
Here are a pair of Pink Footed Geese coming in to land.
And more Pink footed geese
There ws quite a few Snipe out on the pools today, but kept hiding whenever I got the camera out.
This picture proves how many geese there were. This was just a small flock of them.
There was a young female Pheasant hanging around the bird feeders near a smaller pool.
I also saw a Marsh Harrier and a Peregrine Falcon, but couldn't get picture because the Marsh Harrier was to quick and the post the Peregrine was sitting on was to far away to get a decent shot.
A totally brilliant rainy day! So it has to be my very Wild Bird Wednesday blog.
