Pink-footed Geese


October 1st - 4th

Smallish flocks (or more probably a flock) of wild geese flying low over Penny Lane (Collins Green, Burtonwood) after sunset and before sunrise every morning this week. Around 40 - 50 of them. They usually fly from the Haydock/Carr Mill direction each morning and in the opposite direction each evening but this morning (Thursday October 4th) they were heading towards, rather than from, Haydock/Carr Mill.

Pretty sure they are Pink-footed but have only seen them very briefly each time, and without binoculars. Would love to know where they are feeding if anyone knows.
