Canada... or Leighton Buzzard

Always nice to get Pintail on a Bedfordshire self-found year list. Did not get one on the duck hunt this weekend but fortunately had found this male at Grovebury previous weekend on my first bird finding trip of the year when I was actually looking for gulls coming into roost. Managed this record shot of the bird with Canadas and a presumed feral Ross's Goose suggesting a Nearctic scene rather than Beds. Good luck to all this years SFYLers!


  1. A fantastic record shot - not only is the water sloping nicely, but the Pintail is looking away. We need more like this!

  2. The Pintail is life-ticking Ross's Goose
