Thank you Mike. Are Ross's geese the same as Snow geese?

Very similar, but not the same. Sort of like Canada and Cackling Geese

Slightly disappointing but at the same time quite exciting as this was the first time I had ever been to a nature reserve with the sole intention of photographing birds. Plenty of waders and sea birds but all a very long way away! :-( Also this was the first time I had seen a Curlew! It’s quite a big crop and not quite as sharp as I would have liked but it’s a start! :-)

We all start somewhere :) Congrats on the Curlew, that's a really nice 'first'
