At this time of year barnacle geese are coming in in their thousands to overwinter and feed in the fields - here is a distant view of just a few of the geese we saw.
Other wildlife highlights included wigeon
several dragonflies, including this one, which I think is a common darter
and several stonechats (click on the phto below for a better view)
Back in the hotel that day we had great views of a nuthatch feeding on the sunflower seeds we had put out on the wondowsillNature Notes
