Eye Green 23rd Feb

On the way back home from London/Peterborough I called in briefly at Eye Green NR. The Scaup I found at CEGB a couple of weeks back has relocated here, where it is showing better to say the least:

I also found two Pink-footed Geese (pristine adult and grotty first-winter) showing extremely well among a small gaggle of Greylags here. This is certainly a fine example of the notion that 'vagrant' geese quickly alter to the habits of their chosen carrier species. Most Greylags in the Peterborough area are actually pretty wary and flush easily, but not those at Eye Green... my best ever views of PFG locally.
