A quick gander
Headed down to Sumburgh this morning for an unscheduled journey back to Manchester, so allowed a little time to check out south mainland. A missed turning resulted in a Pink-footed Goose with Greylags at Boddam.
4 Pinkfeet were at Culsetter but there were no sign of any beans? A scan of fields at Brake resulted in a Whitefront then thankfully managed to locate the 3 Bean Geese (2 Tundra & 1 Taiga) at Culsetter.
News of a delay to my flight meant some more searching. Stopped at Grutness first for the Gadwall which showed well.
A lucky scan of Greylags at Exnaboe produced 2 Pale-bellied Brents.
