The Birds of the Solway

Next Februarys’ Solway Winter Geese Tour is now open for bookings. See the link at http://www.wildlifetoursandeducation.co.uk/solway-winter-geese/4554361874

What we all loved on this year’s tour was the sheer number of Barnacle Geese we encountered. We came across a random flock in a roadside field. Regrettably even though we were still quite distant when we pulled up they became very wary and took flight despite us remaining in the vehicle. The noise alone was an experience but the sight of so many in the air at once was just breath-taking. Throughout the day we estimated we had seen between 8 and 10 thousand Barnacles.

Of course as with any of our trips it’s just not about one species or location there are many other species we encounter too. One thing I particularly like to see is Tree Sparrow. Although we can still find them in Norfolk rarely do they show as well as one place we visited.
