Barnacle Goose - Branta leucopsis


Please can you sign this petition to stop the proposed M4 over the Gwent Levels. I feel strongly about this because it is a place I visit a lot. The damage to the Gwent Levels along with Magor Marsh and the Newport Wetlands will be irreparable!


Please look at my website bobswildlife.co.uk. There is a photo of a Oystercatcher,  and  the Red-headed Thrush by Callum in the 'Guest photographer'

  10. A fine looking goose for sure! As with Elephants Child, I will probably never see one up close and personal.

  11. The beastiary shows them growing on a plant, sort of like barnacles, claiming they break off and fly away once mature:

  31. Great beautiful pictures of this fire goose.
    Beautiful colors, sharp and beautiful details.

    Sorry for my late response but I was 4 weeks back with a hernia. Now I'm slowly healing.

  32. As I scrolled down, I found this post is one of my favorites of yours. I like not only the bird but also the backdrop; beautiful bird standing elegantly in the field of little white flowers.
