Hi, following on from Bri’s pics of the long tailed tits at the feeder we also saw two common sandpipers on the long pond. The pair of Gadwall ducks that have been present for a few weeks have disappeared along with a pair of mergansers. The latter were trying to nest but appeared to be harassed by a pair of canada geese. These intruders to our shores want to dominate any area they colonise to the detriment of any indigenous species. Do all those do gooders re the proposed Windermere cull understand the machinations of this gregarious goose?
