Growing population at Titchmarsh .................

The Greylag goose population at Titchmarsh is I think currently the biggest since I started observing the reserve on a regular basis,  breeding is also now commonplace.

The flocks are quite mobile moving between the gravel pits and surrounding fields with some frequency.

The other evening I was out looking for Barn Owls, the early evening sky was cloudless,  sadly no Owls but it was good to see flocks of these geese coming in to roost in the fading light.

They always announce their arrival as their '' honking '' can be heard from a long way off gradually rising to a crescendo as they pass over head, quite a sound and quite a sight.
