Pink-footed Goose in West Glam

Pink-footed Goose at Neath Abbey saltmarsh
Rob Taylor found a Pink-footed Goose at Fendrod Lake this morning which was with with a group of Canada Geese. At about midday I relocated it at the Neath Abbey saltmarsh. I've watch flocks of Canada Geese come in from the Swansea direction before and wondered where it is that they go to roost. It appears that this Pink-foot has given the game away. Hopefully, now that we know this it will prove to be useful again sometime in the future. Also at the saltmarsh a Common Sandpiper along the river.

I've often wondered where the geese at Neath Saltmarsh roosted!
