RSPB Salthome

I had an excellent few days at salthome. large amounts of thrushes were moving through. Pink-footed and barnacle geese were some of the geese i saw. Sadly i missed the whooper swans which had been seen. I also didn't see  the waxwing seen in area. The best sighting was definitely 3 long-eared owl very expertly camouflaged. i saw: pintail, chiffchaff and crossbills.
