I can't see the original sticky so will start a new thread.  Saw nearly 30,000 knot on Breydon Water yesterday.  Great weekend at Minsmere, Otter, Kingfishers, Bitterns, lots of Marsh Harriers

Micky when I first viewed your picture it was the right way up i.e. portrait but now seems to be landscape.

Just on the edge of our village there were 3000 pink footed geese and about a dozen white fronted geese

Micky, Your picture is right way up on my I Pad

Hi OP

The pic is correct on my i-pad but landscape on my macbook.

Love the Kingfisher BTW. How about some pics from your last trip to Minsmeere? I have to convince the wife that a trip over your way early spring is essential.

Sat watching the birds on the feeder and fat ball this afternoon....Blue, Coal, & Great Tits and a pair of Nutchatches, when up flew a Jackdaw who perched on a branch just above the fat ball. It then proceeded to pull up the string holding the bag with the ball in it and then held it in his claws againt the branch, bringing the bag within reach, while he pecked at the food. What a clever bird!! I wonder how often he/she'd tried that trick before getting it right.

This is a true sighting.

Earlier today as we approached a motorway roundabout, There was Santa thumbing a lift south for the summer with black sack and all.

Obviously work done for another year, Migration takes all forms eh?

Everyone was tooting and waving. I might even have stopped if we were going the same way, but as I was clearly on the naughty list this year, perhaps not.

No Reindeer though.
