last ditch goose

the local patch list has clearly fizzled out as it often does in December so I took the opportunity to add one bird to the Scunny year list with a European White-front accompanying a small group of 140 Pink-feet; a much larger flock of 1650 Pinks just  mile away held nothing different; so 208 for the year on the Scunny list and it looks like the patch list will stick on 180 unless something dramatic happens in the next week which seems unlikely
