Brent Goose (juvenile)
Brent Goose (juvenile)
Of the dark-bellied race bernicula which breeds in Arctic Russia. Due to the remoteness of the breeding grounds the breeding success is monitored by the proportion of juveniles (told due to lack of white mark on neck and more marked back) arriving on wintering grounds (mostly SE England, Netherlands and N France). This year the proportion is low, but it was very high last year so no immediate cause for concern for this long lived species.
