First winter Greenland White-fronted Goose at Copperhouse

This first year White-front has been present in the Hayle and Copperhouse area for the last couple weeks.  All grey geese records in Cornwall are unusual and the White-fronted Goose is no exception.  This individual originally arrived with a party of four but decided to stay and make friends with a pair of Canada Geese. 

 White-front is surprisingly small compared to the Canada Goose, as seen below.

  1. Good set of images, like the comparison shot gaves a good sense of the difference in size.
