Bean Geese, Water Pipits and Stonechats at Buckenham Marshes

A quick walk out to the River Yare and back was surprisingly productive for Linda and me: around a dozen Bean Geese flew in to their usual favoured spot, while out on the marshes Pink-footed and White-fronted Geese mingled with Canadas, Barnacles and Greylags. The usual Peregrines were in evidence and large flocks of Reed Buntings fed among the path-side scrub.

Quite a few very confiding Stonechats followed us as we walked, while four Water Pipits near the hide were a lot more flighty (Unlike the flock of Meadow Pipits on the grazing marsh!)
