Scanning the geese whenever possible had so far proved fruitless, until this morning as I crept up the Track, raising my bins' there was a smart BARNACLE GOOSE in the midst of the Pink-feet. Simultaniously as I turned to head back and get it on the garden list, the flock spooked (think I pushed my luck too far!) and they all lifted and buggered off! Anyway it was nice to get a 'real' Barnacle after the imposters of last winter!!!
