Barnacle Geese (Branta leucopsis)

A lovely bird, it comes around here about once a year, and today is the day.

  1. I think it is bird migration time, Bob. Here in the Netherlands are also all kind of geese that I have never seen before. Beautiful pictures. Enjoy this experience. I have seen the geese here two days and now they are already gone. Greetings, Joke
