Peregrine pair at Buckenham (and plenty of geese!)

Literally a twenty minute scan of the Buckenham Marshes revealed the now omni-present Bean Geese (until they were disturbed by a railway working party) as well as a decent flock of White-fronted Geese and a large number of Pink-feet.

As I walked southwards to the Yare, I noticed a male Peregrine in the usual dead tree: this flew across to a muddy island on the largest pool to join a big female for lunch! Amazingly, she let him share the Teal she was covering. Just as I was leaving another female flew in and scared them both off!

The only problem with Buckenham is that most birds tend to be too far away for photography: still - you get the idea!
