WWT Slimbridge The CACKLING GOOSE again today in the Goose House Ground but often out of view behind the hedges. Best chance is from the Estuary Tower when the flock moves. Five CATTLE EGRETS and four Little Egrets roosted in the Decoy overnight, the CATTLE EGRETS moved to the South Lake for 5 minutes at dawn and then flew E towards the canal. A Goshawk buzzed the Top New Piece late morning then flew SSE towards the canal and Purton. (Slimbridge Sightings/Roberta Goodall).
