Quest for Freedom!

Bob and I arrived at Cresswell just as day was dawning with a lovely sunrise what a treat we were in for opening the windows and pouring a coffee the noise was the first to greet us then Geese as far as we could see 2000 plus we reckoned then a lull,three Snipe were just down to my right a Shellduck lifted and flew across the front of the hide then that familiar noise again as we were about to be hit with the second wave of Geese stretching as far left to right as you could see probably more in numbers this time.
Shortly after all the excitement five Whooper swans landed two adults and three signets a solitary Egyptian goose came out of hiding down to our right staying only a couple of minutes before flying off,just before we headed off to Druridge  two more adult Whoopers arrived and a single Barnacle Goose was also seen.
We headed down to the bottom of the lane to some scrubby area in search of Goldcrests,Twite and Stonechats and it didn't take long to come across this little fella.

Looks like it achieved its quest for freedom and happily fed alongside goldfinches in the thistle heads etc.
