Tundra Bean Geese

Located the two 'Tundra' Bean Geese in the Bigton / Ireland area this morning with a large party of Greylags. I initially (wrongly) assumed that these would be the Spiggie birds of November 2008 - but after studying plumage and bill detail in the field - and the images - they are definitely 'new' birds. And a very nice patch tick!
