Raptors and geese to the fore - 19th February

A monitoring trip to Budle Bay and Fenham Flats produced a range of interesting species.  The goose flock on Ross held barnacle (250+), greylag (130+), light bellied brent (120+) and pink-footed geese (40+).  There were also 40+ teal in flooded fields on Ross.  A female hen harrier floated north.

1000 light bellied brents were feedding on temporary pasture at Smeafield. 

A male peregrine killed a redshank just to the south of the Lindisfarne causeway.
