First sightings of Geese

Hi all, we had the first sightings of migratory and wintering Geese this week, Jerry took a few pics and I've added them here. We think that they are 'White-fronted' but if anyone knows better?

Plenty of other birds around right now, with big numbers of Fieldfare having just arrived. It's very warm at present with temperatures reaching 18 degrees today.

We're looking forward to the last few weeks of sunshine before the winter really sets so we have been bottling our wine and replenishing our woodpile ready for those cold winter nights. Remember that now is the time of year to start putting your bird-feeders out.

The Frontier Times

Jerry recently won a prize of English Tea bags and Gravy Granules from the Frontier Times the english language newspaper in Veliko Tarnovo. The good people from that publication were kind enough to deliver the booty in person. Jerry insisted in taking the pic, so from left to right we have Stefan, Sandy and Mike.
