A good day out counting geese and seeing good birds. Nearly 8,000 Greylags on just part of the East Mainland with a decent 400+ flock of Pinkies. Best was a cracking drake Surf Scoter that flew west whilst I was trying to count Great Northerns (24) off Rerwick Head. There were 13 Velvets and 2 Commons there as well.
A decent finch flock was another good find with 200 or so Greenfinch, 10 Brambling and 10 Chaffinch.
