There have been no reports of the imm White-fronted Goose amongst the Brent flock on the Peninsula for the last few days and the reason is now clear.... it has been frequenting Climping beach with 1000+ Brents and was there again today (B. Akinola, per Climping website). It is unlikely to roost there though and the flock probably just visits to feed before commuting elsewhere, so it may well re-appear on our patch at any time (OM).
