Preparing to land
Preparing to land
Greylags are preparing to land in a sheep pasture which is already populated by a flock of grazing geese. For a wider view of this location see > LinkExternal link. The greylag is the ancestor of most domestic geese, and the largest of the wild geese native to the UK and Europe but only the native birds and wintering flocks found in Scotland are truly wild geese. The animals eat grass roots, cereal leaves and spilled grain They can easily be seen all year round, sometimes even in suburban parks with lakes. Truly wild greylags are found mostly north of the Solway where they can be observed at RSPB nature reserves such as Mersehead (Dumfries & Galloway), Vane Farm (Fife) and Loch of Strathbeg (Grampian) from September to April. Wild breeding greylags can be found at Forsinard (Sutherland) > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link. LinkExternal link
