|Tundra Bean Goose with Pink-footed Geese on Crossens Inner Marsh, Marshside 7 April 2012.|
|Crossens Outer Marsh this morning; the Barnacle Goose can be made out amongst the Pink-footed Geese.|
Dark-bellied Brent Goose (just right of centre) and at least 3 adult European White-fronted Geese were found during the hour I spent scanning out to the shore of the estuary before deciding to head to Crossens Inner.

The brown back and stocky triangular bill with an orange wedge as quite obvious but life was made all the easier when it got up and started grazing, showing those orange legs.
And the tail pattern with larger dark grey area than Pink-footed Goose, could be seen well when it sat back down again.
Probably missed an Osprey or two during the hour or so I was watching this bird, but it was worth it.
