Tundry Pond

I had an interview at the Blackpool and Fylde College, but that wasn't till the afternoon, which meant we could take time in getting up there, so my Dad and I briefly stopped at Tundry Pond with a few handbrake turns and skids on the icey roads to help the trip more enjoyable. On site there was no sign of any of the 4White-fronted Geese in amongst the Greylags and Canadas. But the Barnacle Goose was still there.

Also in the area was 2 Egyptian Geese, that were noisey, brief and mobile and it wasn't long before they departed to the North, a drake Goosander was on the lake. Heading North Red Kite were just the wrong side of the border.

And for those who give a flying toss, the interview went well, and I recieved a conditional offer into a Wildlife Photography course.
