I spent a very pleasant couple of hours in Spring like conditions at Sandbach Flashes (local to me). Arrived around midday and added a couple of Flashes year ticks. On the way home I decided to take a look around Doddington Lake and make the most of the nice weather. Stopping at one of the viewing areas I set my scope up and at first all seemed pretty quiet. A quick scan amongst the Canada Geese showed up five Pink-footed Geese and a Ruddy Shelduck, a nice way to round off the afternoon.
