26th December 2022 – WWT Slimbridge, Gloucestershire

At this time of the year the Bewick and Whooper Swans are normally the celebrities at Slimbridge. However, today a diminutive goose, a Ross’s Goose (or possibly a snow goose) made a surprise appearance. I have never seen one of these birds before.
