Grazing Geese fuelling for flight

If anyone wants to catch good numbers of geese, before their departure from these parts for their summer breeding grounds, try the Doddington to Milfield to Wooler triangle: the Milfield Plain. Yesterday (14th Feb)2-3,000 Pinkfeet were fattening up on a cereal crop on a road-side field between Wooler & Doddington. However, they were very wary and easily disturbed.
95 Dark-bellied Brent Geese were easily seen from the crooked-lonnen, Holy Island, and less nervous. The greater numbers of  Pale-bellied Brents remained elusive.
