PINK-FOOTED GOOSE of unknown origin again at Amwell

A Pink-footed Goose of unknown origin flew in from the east with Greylag Geese this afternoon. I guess this is most likely the Holyfield individual regularly reported by Graham White (who was on site searching for Bitterns with the HMWT); on my (again horrible) pictures it appears to look different from the "Stevenage" bird we saw on 11 December 2010.

Otherwise:- at least 9 SMEWS (3 adult drakes) - 1 Mandarin (female) - 1 Peregrine, very buffy-coloured, in active wing moult.

The 3 Red-crested Pochards and 2 Pintails are still around. 1 Raven was seen in the morning (Jan Hein Steenis)
