BARNACLE GEESE

Had a pair of Barnacle Geese on our pond yesterday - wonderful sight to see them take off.  Would they be on their way to or from somewhere at this time of the year?  We're on Ashdown Forest in East Sussex.

  • Hi Burnett

    Looking at google maps you are in between WWT London Centre and WWT Arundel

  • Realistically, assuming the i.d. is correct, these are extremely likely to be feral birds. Quite a lot of them in the WWT Slimbridge area, so could well be ones descended from those other WWT places Alan referred to.
