GROT GOOSE...

If you've been down to the mere (Budworth Mere, Cheshire) this weekend you've probably seen and/or heard the latest addition to the growing list of 'Grot Geese' that we seem to be attracting...








searching tinternet it appears this 'thing' is whats known as a Steinbacher Goose...a cross between German domestic Greylag types and a Chinese Goose...looks like its done one over the gulag fence and ended up on Budworth Mere, honking away in a Germanic Chinese accent...lovely what!

On a more positive note i:e my Local Patch List, I've now moved up into 1st place (until Greg gets back off holiday) and gripped back Jack Snipe (Ashton's Flash) on my 6th attempt...nice! and with the returning Redshank pair and a plethora of Chiffchaffs I'm two away from 100. Looking good Podster...careful dear chap remember the diabolical Black Redstart dip of last year. The hundred up (individually) before the end of March now thats a dam fine Local Patch me thinks. Bring it on....
