    Not rare birds or even great photo's - but some of the birds I see on my walks

    I can't believe how many geese were in the sky

    Let alone how many were in the water

    And on the farmers field

    I see a lot of Gulls, Plovers and Lapwings on the beach as well, however my camera hasn't got a good enough zoom to get them.

    Thx - Moorhens have the coloured beak - I always get them the wrong way around :eek:

    I see the Coots in more open water - but the moorhens are always hiding amongst the reeds on the smaller water ways
