Lesser White Fronted Goose

By tommyld
Thank you for your C&Cs on my last upload, i very much appreciate them.

Here is a shot of a Lesser White Fronted Goose taken at WWT Martin Mere yesterday, it breed's in northernmost Asia, and there is a re-introduction scheme in Fennoscandia. normaly the Lesser White-fronted Goose winters further south in Europe and is a rare winter vagrant to Great Britain, Individual birds formerly appeared regularly at WWT Slimbridge in Gloucestershire, England, where they inspired Sir Peter Scott to set up The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust modern records, however, are far less frequent, a consequence of the species' decline on its European breeding grounds.

IMHO one of your very best to date, Tom. Spot on exposure showing the lovely plumage detail, tones and patterning off to full advantage and a very fine eye. Perfect reflection and water tones complementing the colours of the plumage.
