Curlew lane, Martin Mere

Pink-footed goose 5000
Whooper swan 200

Fantastic scenes in Curlew lane, with thousands of pink-footed geese and at least 200 whooper swans feeding on the fields. A farmer walked around the edge of the field and all of the geese took to the air in a deafening spectacle, yet strangely the swans didn't fly. No sign of the snow goose, though it was seen to fly over Martin Mere earlier in the afternoon.
