Ridgeway''s Cackling Goose

I think this may be the bird lost from the estuary. Looks the right size anyway. Grid ref  -  SX938896 Nearest pond to the Swing Bridge adjacent to the Exeter Ship Canal.

Not much else around except a at least 4 Little Grebe on Manaton Marsh.

N.B. Old Sludge beds well flooded only accessible with wellies and even then a bit dodgy. All the ponds well filled.
