Magic Beans

Three Bean Geese turned up at Longham Lakes on Thursday, a rare bird in Dorset, but I couldn't get to go before Saturday morning, and even then I only had a narrow window between dawn and having to leave at 0830 for other commitments. What with geese being big and all, an attempted smash and grab still seemed worth the effort. Unfortunately, before I got there, these particular Magic Beans had performed a vanishing trick, and were nowhere to be seen. A pair of Bewick's Swan were some compensation, and they spent a while on the lakes calling to each other before heading off to feed on the nearby floods.
