Presumably a rather leuchistic Greylag Goose, though it was hanging about with the Canadas

16 November 2014: A day at Upton Warren Nature Reserve, Worcestershire
Went to Upton Warren Nature Reserve with a friend and had an early start to try and catch the early morning activity. However, it remaind grey all day, so morning never quite arrived. That said we saw plenty of birds though no Kingfisher in spite being on site for over 6 hours - on the last few visits I have never failed to see at least one, even if I never managed any pictures.
Water Rail - appropriately enough from the Water Rail hide.
Therwe was a Cetti's Warbler that kept teasing by flying around he hide and then acroo the various reedbed patches, but always evading the camera. Then we moved on to the east hide and saw approximately 50 Common Snipe in the open.
The flashes were very quiet, possibly too much water for waders after a lot of rain. Sun starts to set an dtime for home.
