Cute little humbugs! Annoyingly noisy when they get just a little older and constantly demanding food.Lots of Great Crested Grebes producing babies down here. They are one of the few birds in the Perth area that are also found in the UK (and many other parts of the world). Interesting how some birds become widely distributed whilst others are only found in quite specific locations.

Very likely Pink Footed Geese. 20-30 thousand winter around the Pilling area. There are some Greylags but much smaller numbersRiding along Lune estuary on Friday and came across hundreds of greylag geese. I’m pretty sure they weren’t pink foots although they are similar to me as a non expert.
Wonderful news! I love their sweet gentle twittering. Make sure to examine every member of the flock in case there's a Cedar Waxwing among the Bohemians.Waxwings! Got to love a waxwing. About a dozen earlier in the week but a larger flock arrived today.
You can tell which tree they are feeding on by the group of photographers with huge lenses trained on it. I'm not interesting in photographing them so I wander off to the other trees to listen to them calling to each other without the distraction of shutters whirring. And watch them hanging upside down from twigs.
