Goosie In The Sky With Diamonds

Arrrghhh they get worse don't they.  I wouldn't have awkwardly shoe horned this title had it not been for the death of George Martin this week but it's on my mind.

The Goosie was not a Anser but a sawbill.  I have seen very few sawbills within the Ely10, 4 or 5 Smew and even fewer Goosander make up the tally.  So it was a complete surprise to step out to the car this morning and look up to see a drake Goosander flying quite low over the Elm tops and towards the small reservoir beyond Stuntney Hall.  A great addition to the garden list, which remains a magical, mystery number until I have a count up.
