Slimbridge has a very impressive selection of geese. I added 3 to my photographic list that I had not previously encountered at any of the other WWT centres.

First the swans, the UK residents Mute Swan



and Bewick's Swan, actually sub-species bewicki of the Tundra Swan



Now the geese, starting with resident and common Greylag Goose from which domestic geese derive



and those from high northern latitudes, the Greater White-fronted Goose



Lesser White-fronted Goose



and Snow Goose, found in two colour morphs - 'snow' and 'blue'





the central Asian Bar-headed Goose



the Bering Sea Emperor Goose



the South American geese, Andean Goose



and Ashy-headed Goose



and finally the Australian Cape Barren Goose
