General > Wildfowling and back to the South Solway...
Wildfowling and back to the South Solway for evening flight and the chance of a Pinkfoot for our two Wildfowlers?
Having seen a few Pinks on the marsh a couple of days beforehand and having heard reports of several hundreds on the fields at the back of the marsh I returned full of confidence (or is it hope?). This time I had my nine your old son Sam along with me, he was hoping for his first shot at a Pinkfoot.
Driving round the South Solway we saw a few big lots of Pinks flighting into feed towards the west, its starting to look like the geese have started to arrive better late than never! We pulled up at Cardurnock and once kitted up headed out onto the point, it was pretty windy and I thought wed stand a chance of getting under the geese leaving the reserves and going back onto the roost.
It doesnt really matter how you try to tell the story of this flight, it fails to change the truth a long wait saw us back to square one, no geese and no sight or sound of geese. Not to worry, good to be out and Sam had enjoyed his surroundings its good for him to have the time to get a feel for the place. So empty handed it was back to the vehicle for the drive home, next week would be the full moon and we would be back and full of confidence for a major influx of birds.
