I had my first Wild Goose chase today, in search of the Bean Goose that was reported on Birdguides yesterday.
I started at Longhirst Flash where it was reported but no sign, only 2 Mute Swans and a couple of Coots.
Next to Linton Lane, no sign there either. A Mute Swan family with 2 cygnets showed well in front of the hide at the bigger pond but as usual no camera. There were also 4 third year Herring Gulls on the left island on the smaller pond as well as all the usual suspects.
The same at Bothal Pond just another Mute Swan family with 6 cygnets and some coots with there young.
I cant even be bothered to upload the rest
