A couple of weeks ago my neighbour from across the road left me voice mail to tell me that there was Barnacle Goose mixed in with a flock of Canada Geese feeding in my field. I can't easily see that part of the field from the house so I hadn't seen the bird. I didn't check my voice mails regularly and missed the message until the after the bird left. It had stayed around for a couple of days. I missed a lifer and a mega rarity for this area.
