White-fronted Goose

Katie Bogbumper took me down to Ferry Meadows CP this lunchtime (26.10.04). We went in at the Milton Ferry Bridge end. A quick scan over the meadows near the Nene (the Heron Meadows area, I think) brought an unusual grey goose among the Canadas. So we snuck a bit closer and found it was a European White-fronted Goose. There are also a couple of Barnacle Geese in this flock and unusual geese down at the park always get a certain amount of chin-rubbing and coughed-under-the-breath "ahem-plastic-ahem-cough-splutter".
Make of it what you will. Here are a couple of digibinned shots using RSPB 8x32FG bins and a Nikon Coolpix 4500.
