Yesterday I was back in the office and at lunch time my usual search for geese produced numerous empty fields with geese flying in the distance having just been disturbed by twitchers/farmers/whatever. Eventually I gave up and stopped at Brancaster Staithe where I took a few snaps.

Notice the orange inner scapulars on the Dunlin above - retained juvenile feathers or new breeding plumage feathers coming through?
