Pity about the Bean Goose

4 of the 7 Pink-footed Geese
At Pett Level this morning the Pale-bellied Brent Geese were showing well with the Dark-bellied Brents at the Winchelsea end. At the pools the Red-breasted Goose(many thanks to Tony Wilson for putting me on to it) was showing very distantly by Military Canal  with Whitefronts and Barnacles on the sea a few Red-throated Divers and Great-crested Grebes. At Northpoint GP there was 2 Red-head Smew but no Jack Snipe. 400+ Whitefronted Geese flew west in 2 flocks 250+ & 150+ and 84 Bewick Swans flew East.
At Scotney on my second visit today the Geese flock eventually came in. In it there was 7 Pink-footed Geese, 100 + Whitefronts, 100+ Wild Barnacle Geese along with the feral flock of Barnacles and 5 Egyptian Geese including the albino bird, but no Bean Goose.
