Barney & Friends

Spent the afternoon in search of the Gwent White Egret. Goldcliff Pools, Boat Lane, Saltmarsh Lane and the eastern end of the Uskmouth Lagoons had a few large white objects dotted across them but, unfortunately, each and every one was a Mute Swan, Feral Goose, Little Egret or large lump of plastic agricultural detritus.

By far the best-looking bird of the day, there is nothing like wild geese,... and this is nothing like a wild goose; it seems to have a robust cable tie type 'ring' on its right leg, that'll be category E then.
