Snow Goose

Sighting date: 2023-02-21. 

Submitted by: A. Collinge. 

Location: Campfield Marsh. 

An adult pure white bird with jet black primaries feeding amongst hundreds of Pinkfoot in the fields around Campfield Marsh, in flight almost Gannet like amonst the Geese. Not a hybrid as i have seen in the past. Does not look like an escape?

Also today Bittern still present from main hide. High tide produced 200+ Golden Plover, 200+ Oyster Catcher, good numbers of Curlew, Lapwing, Dunlin, Redshank & 25 Grey Plover
