That Goose.

Finally went to Lerwick for that damned Goose, as it may one day be accepted as a Cat C vagrant (when all the planets are in alignment, the beasts start to speak in tongues and the Iron and Lamp lie down together). When I first got the news of this bird, about 10 days ago, I was enjoying several pints in the 'Night Heron' bar on Diu Island in India - a far better place to be than Lerwick in March !

Egyptian Goose.

At least it wasn't mistaken for a Great Bustard, as one was recently in Leicestershire!
