Wrafton area

Late out today, and met a birdwatcher who had walked down to Sherpa main pond and seen lots of Canada Geese with 'something else' which he thought might be a Greylag. A small bell went off in my small brain and after looking round the reserve, I took a similar walk and after 20 or 30 minutes a few more Canadas appeared over towards Chivenor, and the last one on the left showed it was a real alarm bell when it morphed into the elusive Pink-footed Goose! I called Andy and he also managed to see it. Also present at least 4 Swifts, a Swallow (yes only one) and the white Reed Bunting. The drake Pochard still present on Wrafton Pond.
