Barnacle Goose resting, Outskirts of the Peak District National Park. Barnacle Geese are typically found around coastal regions of the UK, migrating here to escape the harsh conditions in the arctic regions of Europe and Russia. However an inland lake that I often visit for waterfowl has enticed a healthy population of these pretty geese. This image was taken during a heatwave where even the waterbirds were feeling the heat, panting and flattening out their bodies in the shade.
About The Barnacle Goose:
“The barnacle goose is a medium-sized, sociable goose, with black head, neck and breast with creamy-white face. This contrasts with the white belly, blue-grey barred back and black tail. It flies in packs and long lines, with a noisy chorus of barking or yapping sounds.”
