Tuesday's did you know?

Most geese are grazers and we are fortunate so many stop over in our area often seen in large numbers, head down, nibbling away at grasses and other low-growing vegetation in fields and on estuaries. Telling wild geese apart is not always easy but here are a few clues that may help you on your way to identifying these diverse and fascinating visitors. Identify the geese you see with the RSPB here...
