Ringing - Barnacle Geese

Barnacle Geese - 21/07/2021 at Llangorse Lake/Common

Ring description: Blue c/r on left leg, and combo of BTO metal ring/grey unnumbered ring on rt leg.

46 adults and nr-full grown goslings were colour-ringed today. Two pairs with very young goslings at foot were not gathered due to trampling risks. This is part of a UK-wide study into these feral breeding flocks. The Llangorse breeding flock are only present March-August but it is not known where they originate or winter. Any sightings of these geese (especially from Sept 2021) across the UK would be welcome to help solve the mystery.
