excellent pictures taken by Brian-West Yorkshire Birding blog and Dave-Pennine Skywatch
blog.Just shows what can happen with a routine visit, in this case to Leeshaw Reservoir, one
of the many local sites we go to fairly regularly.We knew that the Barnacle Geese was a rare
sighting for our area so we passed the news on to Brian, and thanks to him for spreading the
details for others to enjoy. We didn't realize how rare the sighting was until we read the reports
from Brian and Dave and seeing their wonderful pictures of the geese grazing in a nearby field.
There was even the bonus of some Pink-footed Geese,Canadas and Greylags that had joined them.
Here are a few more snaps that we took.
