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
