White Fronted Goose at Sharpham on the Somerset Levels

March 03, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I was lucky enough to find this unusual visitor close to the road near the Durston Peat Works on only my second attempt.  It was hanging out with two greylags and was about 10m the other side of a gate into a field.  Never having seen one before I was very cautious and parked opposite the gate, slid out of my car, extracted the camera from the boot and rested the camera on the roof of the car.  The geese were well aware of me but quickly settled.  They had clearly grown used to all the comings and goings at the peat works and I soon realised that they were more alarmed by the various vehicles on the road than by me and in the end, I walked right up to the gate and continued taking pics at pretty close range.
