Pink footed goose influx

Today there has been a major influx of Pink footed geese into the UK. Thankfully at the watch point I managed to record 2,620 ( A new site record) at distance moving E/S/E. Over 9,000 were reported from a watch point at Bolton!

Whilst a good number of these geese were flying high it is good time to keep an eye out for lower flying PFG which are fairly common over our area during October. There is a good chance that you will hear them calling as they fly over.

On a different note, I called in at Raw Nook Nr to look for moth leaf mines.

I found a Ectoedemia albifasciella ( status common) mine on Oak with the larva which as I have said before constitutes a breeding record, which is excellent news for our urban nature reserve.
