Bean Goose left hand bird Photos DF.
Most of January was spent watching our two Harriers, an adult female and a first winter male. Also good numbers of Bramblings and Crossbills with the later seen carrying nesting material and courtship feeding. My big dip locally was missing Calderdale’s 4th record of Bean Goose that DF found at Ringstone Edge on 20th, really thought I was in with a chance to get a Calderdale tick but not to be the bird flew off 10 minutes after I got the message. The only consolation was seeing the 4 White- fronted Geese at Ringstone a week later.
